Still under construction, Grady marijuana cultivator gets license extension



Carpenter Medical Group will have seven more months to complete its medical marijuana cultivation facility after state regulators granted an extension to the Southeast Arkansas cultivator who didn’t make its deadline to get up and running.

The state Alcoholic Beverage Control Board, which regulates the state’s medical marijuana program, unanimously granted the seven-month extension after the cultivator failed to meet the state’s one-year deadline to become operational and the cultivator’s 60-day extension had expired. Since July 2020, licensees have had one year from issuance of their license to become operational and can request one 60-day extension from ABC.
