Missouri Marijuana Laws

Missouri Marijuana Laws

The state of Missouri considers marijuana to be a dangerous drug and it is illegal to use for recreational or medical purposes. Therefore, possession, cultivation, or distribution carry with it steep criminal punishments.

Punishments of Marijuana Possession

  • Possession of less than 35 grams is a Class A misdemeanor, and is punishable by a maximum sentence of 1 year imprisonment and a maximum fine of $1,000. Like most other states in the U.S., as the amount of marijuana in your possession increases, so does the corresponding punishment. Therefore, if you are found in possession of more than 100 kilograms in the State of Missouri, it is considered trafficking. This is a Class A felony, punishable by 10 years to life imprisonment.

Cultivation and Distribution

  • If you are caught selling or cultivating 5 grams or less of marijuana, it is a Class C felony – punishable by up to 7 years imprisonment with a maximum fine of $5,000. The sale or cultivation of 100 kilograms or more is a Class A felony punishable by 10 years to life imprisonment (with no probation or parole) and $5,000-$20,000 fine. Like other states, stricter punishment occurs if someone sells marijuana within 1,000 feet of a school or public housing – and is punishable by 10 years to life imprisonment and $5,000 to $20,000 fine.

  • Cultivation of marijuana in Missouri is punished based upon the aggregate weight of the plants found and possession of paraphernalia, which is considered a misdemeanor. Though the possession of paraphernalia is a misdemeanor, the actual sale of it is a felony punishable by a maximum sentence of 5 years imprisonment and a maximum fine of $5,000.
