Marijuana Facilities 

On November 8, 2022, the voters of Missouri passed constitutional amendment 3, which allowed for the recreational use and associated land uses for Marijuana. Amendment 3 requires cities to permit recreational marijuana and its facilities within their municipal boundaries. 

On June 6, 2023 the City Council passed Ordinance #23-071 which regulates Medical and Recreational Marijuana Facilities and related activities to promote the health, safety, and general welfare of the citizens of the City of St. Charles, Missouri, and to establish reasonable and uniform regulations to prevent the possible deleterious operation, location, and concentration of Marijuana Facilities within the City of St. Charles, Missouri.
