by Ella Young April 18, 2019

The Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services (DHHS) released a draft of facility license application questions along with a rubric for how their applications will be scored. The DHHS has established ten advisory committees that will go over the specific application criteria.

The facility license application questions posted by the DHHS  include, but are not limited to, the following planning:

Other business plans may be required, for example those applying for a Cultivation License or Infused Product Manufacturing License will need to provide a Cultivation Plan or Manufacturing Plan.

In recent weeks, the DHHS also published several pages of draft rules to govern their medical marijuana program. The DHHS is seeking public feedback on their proposed rules and applications through early May 2019. Rules and applications for the medical marijuana program will not be finalized until June 4, 2019. 

Key draft regulations that have been posted to the DHHS website include the following:

  • General Provisions
  • Qualified Patient / Primary Care Rules
  • Medical Marijuana Establishments Generally
  • Cultivation Facility
  • Infused Products Manufacturing Facility
  • Testing Facility
  • Dispensary Facility
  • Transportation
  • Physician / Health Care Provider 

It is extremely important to provide feedback during this draft phase of the Missouri medical marijuana program regulations. Each of the guidelines presented will shape the entire program, and how licensed medical marijuana businesses operate. You can submit feedback through a form provided by the DHHS.
