Mississippi Medical Marijuana Laws-2Mississippi Medical Marijuana Laws

Medical Marijuana Legalization arrived in Mississippi! The state voted in favor of Initiative Measure No. 65 this November 3rd to ensure the availability of and safe access to medical marijuana for qualified persons with debilitating medical conditions.

This initiative proposes to amend the Mississippi Constitution to allow patients with at least one of 22 debilitating medical conditions to use medical marijuana, under the approval of Mississippi licensed physicians and licensed treatment centers.

A regulated program will be set up by the Mississippi Department of Health to establish how marijuana will be grown, processed, and made available to ensure safe and secure access for qualified patients.
