Last evening, I interviewed Dr. Randall Williams, Director of the Missouri DHSS, on my radio show. I asked him whether patients, and caregivers, were going to receive physical cards via US Postal Service or if the documents received from DHSS online will serve as the “cards”. He told me he believed cards would be mailed out soon.
However, today I received a phone call from the attorney for the Medical Marijuana Program. She told me that Dr. Williams was mistaken. Patients and caregivers will in fact will not receive “cards” in the mail. They will use the documents which are sent to them by DHSS when they are approved as proof of their patient or caregiver status. I told her I would try to clear up any confusion on that point.
