What happens next with legal weed in Missouri?

Recreational marijuana will soon be legal for Missourians over the age of 21 after voters passed Amendment 3. But how soon can people expect to buy it, and what's the timeline for expunging criminal records?

The passage of Amendment 3 last week paved the way for the legal sale and consumption of recreational marijuana in Missouri. But there also are all sorts of questions about the constitutional amendment itself and how its many provisions will now be carried out: How soon will you be able to shop for edibles or retail weed? And how soon will those convicted of marijuana use or possession see their criminal records cleared?

On KCUR's Up To Date, host Steve Kraske spoke with Jack Cardetti, spokesman for Legal MO 2022, to get some answers.
