You may know that Missouri and Kansas City have partially decriminalized marijuana, including for medicinal purposes. However, possession of more than 35 grams of marijuana is still a misdemeanor. Cannabis is still illegal under federal law. We keep close track of changes in Missouri’s marijuana laws, and we are prepared to represent you.
