Marijuana Commission sets meeting

The Arkansas Medical Marijuana Commission will meet at 3:30 p.m. Tuesday at Alcoholic Beverage Control Division offices at 1515 W. 7th. This meeting is to be streamed on the web.

The agenda is not set, but spokesman Scott Hardin said no public comment period is anticipated. The commission is expected to address issues raised at a recent public comment session. Many comments addressed the delay  in delivering medical marijuana to the public two years after voter approval.

Cultivation permits have been awarded and facilities are under construction. A consultant is reviewing applications for dispensary permits. Recent predictions have indicated medical marijuana could be available by the end of the first quarter of 2019. (Not 2020 as I first wrote)
