The Missouri House of Representatives passed a bill that places restrictions on marijuana-infused edibles and is being sent to Governor Mike Parson to be signed.
The bill states the sales of any edibles that could attract children are prohibited which include edibles that are designed in the shape of humans, animals, fruit, or cartoon characters. However, edibles with geometric shapes such as circles, squares, and triangles will be permitted.
The legislation also included a provision where each package that contains 10 mg or more of THC must be labeled with the universal marijuana packaging symbol.
Additionally, the bill also states that all dispensary contractors, owners, and employees are required to undergo a state and federal criminal background check.
Missouri dispensaries are expected to begin opening around mid to late summer where medical marijuana patients can begin purchasing products. In order to access
dispensaries, residents must first obtain a Missouri medical marijuana card.
If you are a Missourian suffering from a qualifying condition, you may be eligible to treat your ailment with medical marijuana, which includes both THC and CBD products.
