(MISSOURINET) –  Recreational marijuana use is now legal among adults in Missouri and a Missouri prosecutor expects an increase in DWI cases involving marijuana. Randolph County Prosecuting Attorney Stephanie Luntsford says she first noticed an increase in DWI cases involving pot after Missouri voters first approved medical marijuana use in 2018. Missouri does not have a legal limit for marijuana use among drivers, and Luntsford says a standard could help prosecutors.

Missouri’s medical marijuana shops could start selling pot for recreational purposes as early as next month.
