Missouri Medical Marijuana Companies Are Aware of Recreational Sales

Recreational marijuana sales in Missouri are now just over a month away. For small business owners like JC Cirese, whose business, Doctor Smoke on Broadway, sells legal marijuana derivatives, the wait will be at least a year. “I think it’s unfortunate for those smaller companies that, you know, are trying to get into the industry and realize that there’s a lot of corporate dominance in the industry,” Cirese said. Small business owners are applying for a lottery to be chosen for a license. However, the state’s nearly 200 medical marijuana dispensaries have the inside scoop on recreational sales. Missouri Cannabis Trade Association spokesman Jack Cardetti said they all applied for and should be fully licensed to sell recreational marijuana beginning February 6. On Monday morning, Maxwell Huerter went to From the Earth, a dispensary on Troost Avenue, hoping to purchase recreational marijuana. They told him that he would have to wait another month. -a-time thing. But I heard about the law. I thought I was just keeping a stash, so I wouldn’t have to keep asking my friends,” Huerter said. With a successful lottery application, Cirese hopes to sell recreational marijuana as soon as possible. But he also understands that the dispensaries will probably have at least a year’s head start on him. “Hopefully Missouri will be as fair and allow, you know, disadvantaged people and people of color, small businesses to participate because that’s very valuable to this industry, to all industries, to have a good, competitive, free market.” Cyrese said. Adults 21 and older will be able to legally purchase recreational marijuana when sales begin. Adults of the same age can already possess three ounces or less of the drug.
