Missouri Medical Marijuana Program is Growing

(Farmington) Medical marijuana sales began in Missouri last October and in less than a year, sales have topped 91-million-dollars.

Jack Cardetti is the spokesman for the medical cannabis industry in Missouri, known as MoCann.

He says there were record sales last month, more than 20-million dollars worth of cannabis sold in just July.

Cardetti says this growth will likely lead to recreational cannabis in in the Show-Me State.

Cardetti says he thinks Missourians would rather see recreational cannabis regulated and taxed, instead of staying in the underground black market.
