Another complaint filed on marijuana permits

Posted By on Tue, Mar 13, 2018 at 2:11 PM

River Valley Relief Cultivation, one of the unsuccessful applicants for a marijuana cultivation permit, has filed a letter of protest with the Arkansas Medical Marijuana Commission.

 A letter from a legal representative said the commission should delay final awards, scheduled Wednesday, until concerns are checked.

The letter makes two major complaints:

* That winner Delta Medical Cannabis had given an inaccurate description of the background of one of its marijuana experts.

* That questions must be answered about compliance with rules requiring that no applicants have state tax deficiencies, an issue already under review.

Here's the letter.

I am also told that I an expect the first lawsuit over the process to be filed this afternoon, but nothing is in the hopper yet.

Another unsuccessful applicant had objected previously. State Rep. Scott Baltz had also raised the question about compliance with the tax payment rule.
