The constitutional amendment legalizing medical marijuana in Missouri was put on the ballot and approved by state voters in November 2018 through a successful petition campaign.
Many persons and groups involved in that effort launched a new petition drive in late January to put another constitutional amendment on the November 2020 ballot to legalize recreational marijuana usage in Missouri by persons 21 and over. Currently 11 other states have legalized some form of recreational marijuana usage.
