The Responsible Cannabis Agent
As of January 20th, 2023, the state of Missouri’s new Emergency and Proposed Rules for Medical and Adult Use Cannabis went into effect.

All cannabis businesses in the state are required to implement a Quality Management System as of August 1st, 2023.

The new rule (19 CSR 100-1.100(4)(c)) states:

  • Licensees shall implement a quality management system using a published standard, such as those offered by FOCUS International, within one (1) year of the date the facility receives department approval to operate.
  • The chosen standard shall be applicable to the licensee’s facility type and be implemented with emphasis on regulatory compliance.
  • Licensees must be in compliance with 19 CSR 100-1.100(4)(C) by August 1, 2023.

The ANSI-accredited certificate program is based on FOCUS International published standards for medical and adult-use cannabis facilities.
