Right now is an exciting time for the burgeoning medical marijuana industry in Arkansas. The five cultivation licenses were ratified on 10 July, 2018. The Arkansas Medical Marijuana Commission is sending out the dispensary applications to a third party for evaluation. Those licenses are expected to be issued closer to the end of 2018.

We have more than that just in Leflore county Oklahoma. Right across the line. And our dispensaries have product ready to sell Arkansas patients with their temporary Oklahoma medical cards! Arkansas’s politicians failed their people on this one.

I got my card on February 20th what big waste of money. I think our cards should be extended since we still can’t use them yet.

WooHoo!!!! Maybe some day we will actually GET the medicine!!?

waiting for Despenseries to open

And ZERO open dispensaries or access to medicine. What a scam.

if they didn't know about production of how much they would get the first harvest then what do they know to grow for patients? Let us grow our own like other states. All these set backs and the price will be out of most people's reach. Let alone the long drives for anyone with severe pain.

Card but can’t use them. I feel we should have a new activation day applied so we don’t have to renew the card in 9 months

And still no medicine

10,000+ that still cannot get their medication. Woooooo!

I know people don't see this as progress. But in 2013 no one believed me when I said we'd have medical (or decriminalized or legalized) within 10 years here in Arkansas. And here we are. Once the money rolls in after sales, these pos politicians will sing a different tune.

I went to Oklahoma and got a temporary card and I got some medicine, I am close to be in out, Open these doors would be open in Arkansas by now, They are not I don't want to send another $100 for another 30 days, Does anyone know when our dispensary is will open?

Update... on how many patients are without medication!!!

Makes me mad that I had to pay $50.00 for a card that can’t be used yet but is set to renew at another $50.00.

Y'all do know that the more paitients without the increase of production the cultivators won't be able to meet demand , which I believe it's been set up to fail.

Everybody needs to be voted out and replaced for the cluster**** they turned this into.

Waiting for production before I try to get card.

I just hope they will have enough product to serve us all. We are waiting......🤨

Busted 10k, nice!! I'm chiefin' that Okie legal this holiday 😙💨💨

Coincidentally, it’s the same number of people being screwed by bureaucratic foot dragging.

Be careful if u live in AR but get medicine in OK they can get u for trafficking

Arkansas politicians have miserably the patients in our state. We have a pitiful excuse of a medical cannabis program brought about by greedy politicans. NO COMPASSION IN OUR STATE.

And we are still 🦴

Our card activation is ticking away.

Everyone needs to insist on a new activation day. We're getting screwed!!

Arkansas is a Joke!
