Medical marijuana dispensaries in Arkansas are less than a month from beginning sales, bringing to an end a long wait for a program that’s been slow to roll out since voters approved MMJ in 2016.

Cultivators plan to harvest flower next week, with the first medical marijuana dispensary sales to start May 12, according to the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette.

Cannabis cultivation firm Bold Team is expected to begin cutting down plants on April 23 or April 24, then will trim, dry, cure and package flower in the following weeks.
