Medical Marijuana Dispensaries Licensed

All 32 of the medical cannabis dispensaries approved by Arkansas regulators in early January to begin selling medical-grade marijuana across the state have paid the $15,000 licensing fee and posted the necessary $100,000 performance bond in hopes of starting business by early April, state officials said Tuesday.

“With this complete, our focus now moves to the Feb. 13 meeting at which the state (Medical Marijuana) Commission will review draft rules surrounding the transport of medical marijuana,” said Department of Financial & Administration spokesman Scott Hardin, media liaison for the five-person, quasi-state agency that regulates the state’s fledgling medical marijuana industry.

Hardin also said the Arkansas Beverage Control Board’s (ABC) Enforcement Division continues to investigate protest letters received by the MMC concerning cultivation facilities and dispensaries. He said ABC Director Doralee Chandler, who replaced former ABC Director Mary Robin Casteel in late 2018, will release decisions on possible violations as those investigations are completed.    MORE
