Conditions Requirements in Missouri
As stipulated in Missouri Constitution Article XIV, the following medical conditions qualify:
unmanageable migraines that don't go away with other treatments
A chronic medical condition, such as multiple sclerosis, seizures, Parkinson's disease, Tourette's syndrome, or any other condition that results in severe, ongoing discomfort or continuous muscular spasms
severe mental illnesses, such as post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), if determined by a state-licensed psychiatrist
Acquired immune deficiency syndrome or human immunodeficiency virus
When a physician determines that medical marijuana use could be effective in treating a chronic medical condition that is typically treated with prescription medications that could result in physical or psychological dependence and would be a safer alternative to the prescription medication
a fatal disease
Any other persistent, crippling, or other medical condition, in the opinion of a physician, such as hepatitis C, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, inflammatory bowel disease, Crohn's disease, Huntington's disease, autism, neuropathies, sickle cell anemia, Alzheimer's disease agitation, cachexia, and wasting syndrome.
Patients must first get a Physician Certification Form signed by a licensed physician or dentist in good standing with the state of Missouri.
Use the Standard Physician Certification Form for patients seeking the six ounces per month standard recommended dosage.
A physician certification form signed by an MD, DO, or NP certifying the patient for an extra amount over the usual six (6) ounces per month is required for patients who require more than the standard six (6) ounces.
In order to obtain more than the customary six ounces, patients must use the Alternative Physician Certification Form. Two separate physicians must complete these forms, both of which must be submitted with the same qualifying medical condition specified. In the event that the patient receives less than the recommended amount specified by the physicians on the forms, the lower of the two amounts will be granted.
A Parent/Legal Guardian Consent Form must be filled out and submitted with the application by patients who are younger than 18 years old.
A Patient Authorization Form and the patient’s license number, which they will obtain after their application is accepted, are required for caregivers who are applying. The first digit of this number is PAT.
