How to Apply for Missouri Medical Marijuana Patient or Caregiver Card
Patients must have a physician certification form filled out by a qualified physician (Missouri MD, DO or NP in good standing) within 30 days of application (see Physician Certification links below). The standard certification form should be used for patients requesting the standard 6 oz of medical marijuana per month. If the patient requires more than the standard amount, two different physicians should complete the alternative amount form and the patient will be allowed the lesser of the two amounts if there is a discrepancy. For patients under the age of 18, a parent/legal guardian consent form must accompany the Patient Registration Application. Caregivers will need a Patient Authorization Form and they will need the patient’s license number beginning with “PAT” once their application is approved. Patients and caregivers will need to register with the Complia application portal (https://mo-public.mycomplia.com/#!/signin ).
