Medical marijuana commission to hold first meeting Monday

Posted By on Fri, Dec 9, 2016 at 2:34 PM

The medical marijuana commission will hold its first meeting this Monday, December 12, in the Alcoholic Beverage Control Conference Room of the 1515 Building at 1515 West Seventh Street.

The commission, created by the medical marijuana amendment to the state constitution passed by voters last month, will "administer and regulate the licensing of medical marijuana dispensaries and cultivation facilities."

The members of the commission were appointed by the governor, the Speaker of the House, and the Senate President Pro Tem earlier this week: Dr. Ronda Henry-Tillman, a breast cancer surgeon and professor for the Department of Surgery at UAMS; Dr. Stephen Carroll, a Benton pharmacist; Fayetteville attorney Travis Story; Dr. Carlos Roman of Little Rock, a pain management specialist; and James Miller, former chief of staff for the senate.

The commission will meet at 4:20. No no no, just kidding, the meeting will be at 2 p.m.

  • Trump immigration protest at LR: Quick and fierce

    It was not even 24 hours ago that Sophia Said, director of the Interfaith Center; City Director Kathy Webb and others decided to organize a protest today of Donald Trump's executive order that has left people from Muslim countries languishing in airports or unable to come to the US at all — people with visas, green cards,a  post-doc graduate student en route to Harvard, Google employees abroad, families. I got the message today before noon; others didn't find out until it was going on. But however folks found out, they turned out in huge numbers, more than thousand men, women and children, on the grounds of the state Capitol to listen to speakers from all faiths and many countries.
