Missouri Medical Marijuana Doctors: Will COVID-19 Delay Industry Launch? 

To further combat the spread of COVID-19 in Missouri, Governor Parson issued a "Stay Home Missouri" Order effective April 6, 2020, through April 24, 2020. 

This Order directs all Missourians to avoid leaving their residences unless necessary and to practice social distancing when they need to travel outside their homes to work, access foods, prescriptions, health care, and other necessities, or to engage in an outdoor activity. This Order does not require all businesses statewide to close or cease operation.

KLOR reporter, Jesse Inman spoke with the DHSS Director about Missouri's medical marijuana licensing program and progress.

“When these licenses facilities tell us that they’re ready for their commencement inspections, then we’ll have our compliance team ready to go in and walk through their facilities, to make sure they’re up and running and ready,” Fraker said. “Similar to what a building inspector might do.” 

Elevate Holisitcs' team of doctors, patients, and advocates fully support and will continue to defend medical marijuana in Missouri as a COVID-19 'essential industry' for health and wellness.

Stay safe. Stay strong. Elevate your health.
