Medical Marijuana sales surpass 24,000 pounds, commission to meet

Local News

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. — Arkansans have spent $154 million to obtain 24,067 pounds of medical marijuana since the first dispensary opened in May 2019.

There are currently 29 dispensaries in operation with eight remaining that are working toward opening.

There are 83,779 Arkansans holding a patient card. Since April 2020, due to a directive patient cards that expired were honored by dispensaries and these patients maintained the ability to purchase medical marijuana.

As of tomorrow (September 30) the cards that expired over the last few months will no longer be considered active and must be renewed in order to make a purchase. Patients do still have the option of a telehealth visit with a physician to confirm one of the qualifying conditions. A trip to the physician’s office is not required.

The Arkansas Medical Marijuana Commission will meet today (September 29) at 4:30 p.m. The meeting may be viewed via an Arkansas PBS livestream HERE.
