This is the second round of cannabis funding for the Missouri Veterans Commission
Missouri officials on Thursday announced that they have transferred millions of dollars in medical marijuana tax revenue to support programs for military veterans.
This is the second round of cannabis funding for the Missouri Veterans Commission (MVC), raising the total to $6,843,310. Overall, the state has seen more than $113 million in medical marijuana sales since dispensaries opened in October 2020, enabling regulators to make the significant transfers.
“Patients are being served by more than 140 dispensary facilities in Missouri now, and we are very pleased to see their sales revenue where it is,” Lyndall Fraker, the medical cannabis director of the Department of Health and Senior Services, said in a press release. “Ultimately, this is how we are able to provide much-needed funding for the veteran’s commission.”
