After a record setting April, with over $30 million Medical Cannabis sales throughout the state, The MVC is set to receive a $5 million contribution.
Paul Kirchhoff, Missouri Veterans Commission Executive Director, also praised the continued support of the MVC by the Missouri Department of Health. â€œMVC will use these new funds for increasing support for Missouri veterans and veteran operations across seven facilities statewide,â€ Kirchhoff said.
The Missouri Medical Marijuana program began in 2020, and has collected more than $330 million in sales revenue. The use or sales tax funds have been a point of concern and contention in the community. In response Missouri residents voted to adopt Missouri Amendment 2 in November 2018. The amendment requires the Department of Health and Services to transfer fees and taxes generated by the Missouri Medical Program to the MVC.
