Arkansas: Commission to Roll Out Timeline for Issuing MMJ Licenses

1

Next Monday, the Arkansas Medical Marijuana Commission (AMMC) will convene to deliberate on when medicinal cannabis cultivation and dispensary licenses will be issued.

“The Arkansas Medical Marijuana Commission is tasked with the administration and regulation of dispensary and cultivation facility applications in coordination with the Arkansas Alcohol and Beverage Commission,” according to Marijuana.com’s Lesley Nickus.

Cultivators applying for licensing from the AMMC are required to meet “Merit Criteria.” Required to prove they have $500,000 in good funds and $1 million in assets or a $1 million bond, potential cultivators will also be required to pay a $100,000 annual licensing fee.

Born in Long Beach, raised on the central coast: I surf, dab, burn, and blog – though not necessarily in that order. I'm a husband, a father and a lifelong consumer of connoisseur grade weed. I don't drink alcohol or consume any other "drugs." I consider myself to be living proof that weed is not a gateway drug. If it were, I'd be in some serious trouble. Instead, as a 50-year-old ex-realtor that has been smoking weed for nearly 80% of my life (just did the math) ... I can only say, marijuana is safer than prescription pills or alcohol could ever hope to be for calming what stirs the savage beast.
