[Proposed by Initiative Petition]

Official Ballot Title:


Shall the Missouri Constitution be amended to:
•allow the use of marijuana for medical purposes, and create regulations and licensing/certification procedures for marijuana and marijuana facilities;
•impose a 4 percent tax on the retail sale of marijuana; and
•use funds from these taxes for health and care services for military veterans by the Missouri Veterans Commission and to administer the program to license/certify and regulate marijuana and marijuana facilities?

This proposal is estimated to generate annual taxes and fees of $18 million for state operating costs and veterans programs, and $6 million for local governments. Annual state operating costs are estimated to be $7 million.

Fair Ballot Language:


A “yes” vote will amend the Missouri Constitution to allow the use of marijuana for medical purposes under state laws. This amendment does not change federal law, which makes marijuana possession, sale and cultivation a federal offense. This amendment creates regulations and licensing procedures for medical marijuana and medical marijuana facilities — dispensary, cultivation, testing and marijuana-infused product manufacturing facilities. This amendment creates licensing fees for such facilities. This amendment will impose a 4 percent tax on the retail sale of marijuana for medical purposes by dispensary facilities. The funds from the license fees and tax will be used by the Missouri Veterans Commission for health and care services for military veterans, and by the Department of Health and Senior Services to administer the program to license/certify and regulate marijuana and marijuana facilities.

A “no” vote will not amend the Missouri Constitution as to the use of marijuana.

If passed, this measure will impose a 4 percent retail sales tax on marijuana for medical purposes.

[Proposed by Initiative Petition]

Official Ballot Title:


Shall the Missouri Constitution be amended to:
•allow the use of marijuana for medical purposes, and create regulations and licensing procedures for marijuana and marijuana facilities;
•impose a 15 percent tax on the retail sale of marijuana, and a tax on the wholesale sale of marijuana flowers and leaves per dry-weight ounce to licensed facilities; and
•use funds from these taxes to establish and fund a state research institute to conduct research with the purpose of developing cures and treatments for cancer and other incurable diseases or medical conditions?

This proposal is estimated to generate annual taxes and fees of $66 million. State governmental entities estimate initial implementation costs of $186,000 and increased annual operating costs of $500,000.

Fair Ballot Language:


A “yes” vote will amend the Missouri Constitution to allow the use of marijuana for medical purposes under state laws. This amendment does not change federal law, which makes marijuana possession, sale and cultivation a federal offense. This amendment makes Brad Bradshaw (the contact person on this initiative petition) the research chairperson of a newly created research institute that is funded by fees and taxes on medical marijuana. Brad Bradshaw will select the members of the board that will govern the research institute, which will issue regulations and licensing procedures for medical marijuana and medical marijuana facilities — dispensary, cultivation, and marijuana-infused product manufacturing facilities. This amendment creates licensing fees for such facilities. The amendment imposes a 15 percent tax on the retail sale of marijuana for medical purposes by dispensary facilities and a tax on the wholesale sale of marijuana flowers and leaves by cultivation facilities. The funds generated by the license fees and taxes will be used by the research institute for licensing and regulating marijuana and marijuana facilities, land acquisition and development, and conducting research with the purpose of developing cures and treatments for cancer and other incurable diseases.

A “no” vote will not amend the Missouri Constitution as to the use of marijuana.

If passed, this measure will impose an 15 percent retail sales tax on marijuana for medical uses and a wholesale sales tax on marijuana sold by medical marijuana cultivation facilities Official Ballot Title
Proposition C

[Proposed by Initiative Petition]

Official Ballot Title:


Do you want to amend Missouri law to:
•remove state prohibitions on personal use and possession of medical cannabis (marijuana) with a written certification by a physician who treats a patient diagnosed with a qualifying medical condition;
•remove state prohibitions on growth, possession, production, and sale of medical marijuana by licensed and regulated facilities, and a facility's licensed owners and employees;
•impose a 2% tax on the retail sale of medical marijuana; and
•use funds from this tax for veterans' services, drug treatment, early childhood education, and for public safety in cities with a medical marijuana facility?

State government entities estimate initial and one-time costs of $2.6 million, annual costs of $10 million, and annual revenues of at least $10 million. Local government entities estimate no annual costs and are expected to have at least $152,000 in annual revenues.

Fair Ballot Language:


A “yes” vote will amend Missouri statutes to allow the use of marijuana for medical purposes under state laws. This amendment does not change federal law, which makes marijuana possession, sale and cultivation a federal offense. This amendment creates regulations and licensing procedures for medical marijuana and medical marijuana facilities — dispensary, cultivation and production, and testing facilities. This amendment creates licensing fees for such facilities. This amendment will impose a 2 percent tax on the retail sale of marijuana for medical purposes by dispensary facilities. The funds from the license fees will go to the Division of Liquor Control to administer the program to license/certify and regulate marijuana and marijuana facilities. The funds from the tax will be used for veterans' services, drug treatment, early childhood education, and for public safety in cities with a medical marijuana facility.

A “no” vote will not amend Missouri statutes as to the use of marijuana.

If passed, this measure will impose a 2% retail sales tax on marijuana for medical purposes

I went to Colorado earlier this year. Many of you know I have pain issues. I went into these shops and purchased several of the butters and creams (I didn't buy pot to smoke, because I hate the smell and don't want to be high). The products I purchased had both THC and CBD in them. I was STUNNED because they worked wonderfully to relieve pain I feel. I did not get high from this, but it did work wonders on my condition(s). I hated to have to leave these things in CO. when I left the state, but alas, they are not legal in our state, or states I would have to travel across in order to get back to my state.

I am a victim of the "war on opiates" that was waged in the USA. People like me who take long term pain medication under the supervision of a pain management doctor were directly and adversely harmed when this war was waged without the benefit of an alternative for treatment. At the time they waged said war on opiates, many pain patients (not me) were forced to immediately and painstakingly undergo (inhumane even) withdrawals from their medications, because this war set limits on the numbers of milligrams a person could take at one time or for a 24 hour period.

I am ALL FOR marijuana....I know.....SHOCKING that I would say that. While I don't think people should be smoking this stuff and getting high, I do know, from personal experience, that the substance does offer a form of pain relief for persons who are suffering from various forms of pain.

Thanks for letting me share my opinion this subject. :mrgreen: :lol:

I have to say, I agree with you... My dad who we had a time getting him to eat, he would go a couple days between eating for quiet a few years would at least eat pretty good with the meronol (sp) And for what its worth, I've seen people with tremors, spasms and even epilepsy and severe depression, that smoking it as well as the drops would help dramatically.. And it is one of Gods creations... The chemical "drug" companies is the ones who don't want it to be legal...

1 He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.
2 I will say of the LORD, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in him will I trust.

Florida voters passed Amendment 2 on November 8, 2016 which provides for legal access to marijuana for medicinal use by patients who qualify.

Patients will need to qualify for certification and obtain an ID card. Patients must have a "debilitating medical condition" to be eligible for certification.
