What are Missouri Marijuana Microbusiness Licenses?
Starting in 2023, people over the age of 21 in Missouri may apply for a license to cultivate, manufacture, and dispense marijuana products as a Marijuana microbusiness. In order to apply for a microbusiness license, you must be eligible under the law to obtain either the Microbusiness Dispensary License, or the Microbusiness Wholesale License.
The Microbusiness Wholesale license can cultivate and manufacture marijuana products and sell them to another Microbusiness Dispensary License. The Microbusiness Dispensary license can buy marijuana from Microbusiness Wholesalers and retail them at their locations.
