Benefits of Having Your Medical Card in Missouri

Both medical and recreational marijuana are legal in Missouri. Patients with their medical marijuana card and Missouri residents 21 and over can now legally purchase marijuana from state-licensed dispensaries.

There are infinite benefits to getting your medical card in a recreational state. There are discrepancies between costs of marijuana for recreational and medical users, among many other things.

In this blog, we will discuss some of the many benefits of getting your medical card in Missouri.


One thing most people know about marijuana is that it isn’t cheap. This goes for both medical and recreational products. One great way to save money on your cannabis is to grow your own at home.

In order to do this, you will need your cultivation license. Recreational and medical users may both apply for their license. Medical marijuana card holders will only have to pay $50 to apply, whereas recreational users must pay $100.

On top of this, medical marijuana card holders will only have to renew their license every three years. Recreational users must pay to renew the license annually.


As previously mentioned, marijuana is not cheap, and taxes can be quite high for cannabis products. However, the tax ranges will be different for recreational users than they are for medical patients.

In the State of Missouri, medical marijuana patients are responsible for a 3% sales tax. Recreational users must pay a 6% sales tax plus both local and state taxes. Some counties will charge more for taxes than others, but this is a significant difference.
