Recreational marijuana would have $2.36 billion impact, create 6,400 jobs, study finds



Legalizing recreational marijuana in Arkansas would have an economic impact of $2.36 billion and create 6,400 jobs over five years, according to an economic impact study commissioned by Responsible Growth Arkansas, the sponsor of an amendment that would legalize cannabis for adults 21 and older.  

The study, conducted by economists at the Arkansas Economic Development Institute, found that legalization would result in a $2.36 billion increase in state gross domestic product between 2023, the first year of legalization, and 2027.
