Missouri lawmakers have passed legislation permitting patients with epilepsy access to “CDB-only” medical marijuana in the form of a “hemp extract.” On May 1, the Senate passed the bill unanimously (32-0), and the House seconded the bill with a vote of 136-12.

The limited bill would permit epileptic patients to take medical marijuana extracts with THC amounts below 0.3%. Patients would have to obtain a medical marijuana registration card from the state’s Department of Health and Senior Services, which requires a signed statement from a neurologist. However, no other conditions have been approved except intractable epilepsy.

The proposal also mandates the state to certify a college to cultivate cannabis for research purposes. The bill now moves on to Governor Jay Nixon’s desk for approval.
