Recently, Green Thumb Industries was awarded a temporary restraining order by an Arkansas judge. The company is in a legal battle to overturn the issuance of a marijuana business permit to a competitor. Green Thumb contended in a lawsuit against the state that the granting of a second license to Native Green is illegal because Arkansas’ Medical Marijuana law allows an individual to hold a stake in only one dispensary. Pulaski County Circuit Court Judge Mary McGowan granted the TRO requested by Green Thumb Industries (GTI) against the Arkansas Medical Marijuana Commission. McGowan ruled Green Thumb is likely to prevail against the commission.
