The Parson administration has overseen the establishment of the state’s medical cannabis access program, which was approved by voters in November 2018. Regulators have approved over 17,000 patients into the program, which is expected to become fully operational later this year. (Link)

When asked the question, “Do you think that recreational marijuana could be in the future for Missouri?", Gov. Parsons responded: "Oh I’m sure there’s going to be discussion about that in the future you know right now I think we’ve got all we can worry about with Medical Marijuana. Trying to figure out how we’re going to implement that and so right now we’re focused on that. We’re not even having a conversation about recreational marijuana." (Link)
