Missouri is one of the states that offers medical marijuana cards for patients that have qualifying medical marijuana conditions. Gallatin dispensary locations have been growing since the inception of the medical marijuana program, which was passed into law in November 2018. The state has approved a total of 192 dispensary licenses throughout the state, almost all of which are now open for business and providing medical patients with a host of cannabis solutions for pain relief, nausea relief, nerve pain, seizures and spasms, and so much more.

In fact, Missouri’s language in the amendment is some of the most lenient in terms of defining what a “qualifying patient” actually is—in addition to the standard list of terminal, chronic, and non-treatable or incurable conditions, there’s a listing specifically for “any condition deemed by a physician to be best treated by medical marijuana to alleviate symptoms, side effects, or other elements of the condition.”

Partly, that language is there to let doctors have more leeway in determining exactly who is a qualifying patient and to open up the medical recommendation to more people without creating an exhaustive list of potential conditions and issues. The other reason it’s there? Because like most states, Missouri has little faith in the state’s ability to legalize recreational marijuana, even though it’s on the ballot for 2022. Therefore, they want to provide as many opportunities for people to access the medical program as possible.

Is Medical Marijuana Legal in Gallatin, MO?

As mentioned, medical marijuana was legalized in 2018 and continues to be available to residents of Gallatin, MO, and surrounding cities. Patients will need to visit a licensed provider to get a proper recommendation and then pay the registration fee for the card. Currently, that fee is about $25 per year. If patients don’t have medical records of their qualifying condition, they will need to get a diagnosis before they can be approved.

The original doctor’s appointment for the diagnosis (and any related “traditional” appointments) can be covered by insurance. However, nothing related to medical cannabis can be insured since it’s still illegal at the federal level. Patients should be prepared to pay any costs and fees out of pocket, as well as to pay for their purchases from their own money.

Currently, medical marijuana is legal for people with:

Gallatin medical marijuana cards can be issued to anyone with these conditions. As time goes on, additional conditions may be added, so be sure to check back if whatever you’re dealing with hasn’t yet made the list.

Is Recreational Weed Legal in Gallatin, MO?

Missouri does not currently allow recreational weed in Gallatin or anywhere else in the state. There is legislation in place, like many states that have medical marijuana legalized, but nothing has come through as of the time of this writing. People who want to legally consume marijuana in the state of Missouri will have to obtain a medical marijuana card for a qualifying condition.

For those looking forward to legalization of recreational marijuana, the good news is that since Missouri already has the medical program in place, the rollout of recreational dispensaries should be a lot quicker once it does happen. For the time being, it’s been decriminalized so that’s better than nothing, but it’s still technically illegal to possess, buy, sell, or cultivate weed for recreational use of any kind.

Are Medical and Recreational Sales Legal at Gallatin Dispensaries?

As mentioned, recreational sales are currently not legal in the state of Missouri, including Gallatin. However, medical sales are legal and available to the millions of residents who are involved in the state’s medical marijuana program. Medical marijuana products are typically held to higher standards and made with certain conditions or needs in mind, producing a higher-quality product than what you can get on the street, or even in the recreational stores in states where rec use is legalized.

Medical patients may purchase up to four ounces of dried flower or 32 grams of concentrate or prepared cannabis products in a 30-day period. The state monitors dispensed amounts and the computer will tell dispensaries not to sell to someone when their allotment has been used for the current fill period. You can track this yourself online, too, which can help you ensure that you never end up at the dispensary without any purchases remaining.

How to Find Licensed Legal Gallatin Dispensaries

There are plenty of ways that you can find local licensed dispensaries in Gallatin, thanks to the Internet. In addition to a simple Google search, you can use sites like Weedmaps, Bud.com, and others to get a list of local dispensaries. The state’s guide to medical marijuana is also a great resource to keep on hand.

You’ll want to focus on dispensaries that have the types of products that you want. Each dispensary is different. They will have some similar products or some of the same brands, but they will also have something a little different. You can even search stores for specific products or strains to be sure that you get what you need.

If a dispensary is operating in the Gallatin area and it claims to be a licensed medical marijuana business, they will require you to provide your ID and medical card for entry to the retail counter to place an order for the cannabis that you wish to buy. Any “dispensary” that claims to be operating legally without requiring this identification is not what they claim to be.

The good news is that it is really difficult to fake a dispensary, so if you find a list of retailers in your area, they should all be reputable, qualified places to shop.

The biggest thing to keep an eye for is to ensure that you’re not actually finding hemp shops and other retailers that sell CBD and other hemp products like Delta-8 THC, not actual marijuana harvested from traditional marijuana plants. As long as you pay attention to that, you’ll have no trouble getting what you need.
