Arkansas has had a very slow rollout when it comes to implementing its medical cannabis market. In November of 2016, the majority of Arkansas voters voted yes on the Arkansas Medical Marijuana Amendment. Upon its passing, it legalized a medical cannabis market in the state with specific restrictions. The law required the Alcoholic Beverage Control Division to issue regulations for the cultivation and for dispensing medical cannabis in the state within 120 days after the passing of the amendment. Based on the law’s original language, they were also supposed to begin accepting applications for cultivation and dispensing in June of 2017, with patient cards being issued within the same time frame. Unfortunately, in January of 2017, Arkansas legislatures passed a bill that delayed patient applications by two months and business licenses by 30 days.
