Marijuana grown, sold and used for medical purposes became legal in Missouri on Dec. 6, but no one is allowed to do anything with the drug until they receive approval by state regulators. That could be as early as December for business owners applying to grow marijuana commercially, and as early as July 28 for patients applying to grow it at home.

Missouri requires that after Dec. 31, 2020, anyone growing marijuana legally must obtain seeds or plants from a business licensed by the state. But it takes at least a few months for a crop to mature, so growers licensed by January won't have any legal in-state sources for marijuana seeds or young plants

One of the biggest benefits that marijuana has is a Decrease the symptoms of Dravet’s Syndrome
Dravet Syndrome causes seizures and severe developmental delays. Dr. Sanjay Gupta, renowned chief medical correspondent for CNN, is treating a five years old girl, Charlotte Figi, who has Dravet’s Syndrome, with medical marijuana strain high in cannabidiol and low in THC.
During the research for his documentary “WEED”, Gupta interviewed the Figi family, and according to the film, the drug decreased her seizures from 300 a week to just one every seven days. Forty other children are using the same medication, and it has helped them too.
The doctors who are recommending this medication say that the cannabidiol in the plant interacts with the brain cells to quiet the excessive activities in the brain that causes the seizures.
