What kind of health records do you need for medical marijuana in Missouri?
In order to qualify for a medical marijuana card in Missouri, you will need any medical records that clearly state that you are suffering from one of the qualifying conditions, and that the problem is active and ongoing.
For patients seeking medical marijuana for chronic pain, for example, you will need to demonstrate surgeries, attempted treatments, medications and other materials related to chronic pain and the underlying condition causing it.
How do I get my medical records?
Missouri Cannabis Outreach can contact your relevant doctor(s) and obtain your medical records if you do not have access to them. However, in order to dramatically expedite the process of obtaining your Missouri medical marijuana card, we recommend bringing your records directly to your appointment with our state-licensed Missouri medical marijuana doctors.
Most practices and facilities will ask you to fill out a form to formally request your records. Call the provider's office and request a copy of the form. They should be able to deliver it to you by fax, email, or postal mail, or you may pick the records up directly from the doctor's office.
If the doctor's office does not have a specific form, you may write a letter to make your request.
