Marijuana commission to issue new dispensary license in Southeast Arkansas



In a meeting Wednesday afternoon, the state Medical Marijuana Commission voted to issue a fifth dispensary license to Southeast Arkansas’s Zone 7, in which only one of the zone’s four licensed dispensaries has opened for business. Justin Smith, a nurse at Arkansas Children’s Hospital, moved to issue the additional license, and the five-member commission approved the motion unanimously. 

Dr. Ronda Henry-Tillman, who chairs the commission, said she agreed with Smith’s motion.
