Just over a month ago, Arkansas’ medical cannabis program looked to be in serious trouble – how things have changed over the last couple of weeks.
In August, we reported at that point in time there were no applications lodged for growing or dispensing medicinal cannabis in the state and patient registration was less than stellar.
By late August, only two submissions had been received for cultivation.
The pace picked up dramatically recently, particularly in the final days. The number of applications for cultivation has gone from zero to 98 and from zilch to 224 for dispensing according to the editor of Arkansas Business, Gwen Moritz.
