Arkansas To Award Medical Marijuana Growing Licenses

The Arkansas Medical Marijuana Commission plans to begin reviewing applications for grow licenses and announce the successful bidders in late February.


The Arkansas Democrat-Gazette reported the commission decided late last week it will review the 95 applications by Feb. 20 and announce the winners on Feb. 27 at a public meeting.


The commission is also considering more than 200 applications for licenses to open one of 32 dispensaries, but won’t likely name the successful bidders for those licenses until later in the spring, the newspaper reported.

Officials in Arkansas haven’t yet said when medical cannabis will be available for sale.

Cultivators will have a week after license winners are announced to pay a $100,000 licensing fee.
