Regulators To Meet With Cannabis Dispensary Scorers On October 16th

The Arkansas Medical Marijuana Commission on Monday (Oct. 1) scheduled a meeting with a Boston consulting firm in nearly two weeks to score and review the nearly 200 medical cannabis dispensary applications that have been waiting in queue for more than two years.

On Friday, the five-person commission agreed to a pact with Boston-based Public Consulting Group (PCG) to review and score 203 pot dispensary applications and then select up to 32 startup companies to kickstart the fledgling industry by late fall.

At Monday’s meeting, which was held at the offices of the Arkansas Beverage Control (ABC) Board, the five commissioners agreed over a phone-in conference call to meet with PCG executives in person on Oct. 16 before handing off the task to expedite the process.    MORE
