Missouri Marijuana Card announced today that they will be providing free evaluations to Veterans during the first month of operations. Clinics located in St. Louis, Kansas City, and Springfield, will begin seeing patients in mid-July, with more locations expected to open in the coming months.
“As part of our launch, we wanted to give back to those that have served this country. We’ve witnessed firsthand in Ohio how many Veterans use medical marijuana to alleviate PTSD symptoms, but unfortunately, the lack of insurance coverage has made access prohibitively expensive for some. We don’t believe that anyone, let alone Veterans, should be denied access to this incredible medicine because they can’t afford it,” said Missouri Marijuana Card President, Connor Shore.
Missouri Marijuana Card is the sister company of Ohio Marijuana Card, Ohio’s leading provider of medical marijuana evaluations. Missouri Marijuana Card is opening three clinics across the state of Missouri to help patients get approved for medical marijuana under Missouri’s new medical marijuana program.
Shore continued, “In just one year in Ohio, we were able to help 18,000 patients access medical marijuana and improve their quality of life with this incredible, natural, medicine. We expect to see similar enthusiasm in Missouri, and we are excited to help increase access and affordability throughout the state,’
The approval process requires that patients obtain a recommendation for medical marijuana from an MD or DO licensed to practice in Missouri. All Missouri Marijuana Card locations are staffed with certified doctors that recommend medical marijuana to eligible patients, and support staff that assist patients throughout the registration process.
In 2018, voters in Missouri voted in favor of amendment 2, a constitutional amendment to legalize cannabis for medical use. The board of pharmacy will begin issuing patient registration cards on July 1st, and dispensaries are expected to open statewide by end of the year.
