In November 2022, Missouri voters passed a constitutional amendment allowing the sale and use of marijuana for personal use for those ages 21 and over.

The state will charge a 6% tax on legal purchases of recreational marijuana. In addition, cities and counties have the option to charge a sales tax of up to 3% with voter approval.
