Applications are now available for those who want to start medical marijuana businesses in Arkansas.
The commission has said it will issue 32 licenses for dispensaries and five for cultivation facilities. Regulators will score the applications on a 100-point basis covering five sections and will award them after Sept. 18. A state official estimated medical cannabis sales could start before January 2018.
Arkansas voters last year approved a measure to allow the use, cultivation and sale of medical cannabis, then passed an amendment making it easier for physicians to recommend MMJ.
