Proposed State Law
Proposition C, also known as “The Missouri Patient Care Act”, gives Missourians the opportunity to vote on allowing patients with certain medical conditions to have access to medical cannabis. This measure takes the best practices learned from other successful initiatives in other states so that patients have the option to alleviate pain without the side effects of heavy prescription medications.
