With the last legislative hurdle cleared, Arkansas is poised to start taking applications for licenses to grow and sell medical marijuana.
After a final review by the Arkansas Legislative Council on Friday, a spokesman for the state Department of Finance and Administration said the final forms will be posted online Tuesday.
From that point, would-be business owners will have 90 days to find the best way to tell the Arkansas Medical Marijuana Commission why they should be chosen. One hopeful — Storm Nolan of Fort Smith — said growers and sellers need to sweat the details.
“When it comes to application time, everyone really needs to be able to have a good plan in place for all of these little things — it’s a ton of little things if you think about it — everything from strain selection to trying to forecast what products are going to be demanded by the market to what sort of childproof packaging everyone is using,” he said.
