UPDATE: Well Explosion in Conway County

Posted By on Mon, Oct 6, 2008 at 3:25 PM

There are reports coming in of an explosion at a gas well in Conway County.  Conway County Sheriff Mike Smith said no one was injured, however one person was taken to the hospital.  Apparently the explosion happened as workers were trying to relieve pressure in the well through a controlled burn.  I'll post more on this as it comes in.    

UPDATE: Channel 11 has more.

    One of the booths at this week's Ark-La-Tex Medical Cannabis Expo was hosted by the Arkansas Hemp Association, a trade group founded to promote and expand non-intoxicating industrial hemp as an agricultural crop in the state. AHA Vice President Jeremy Fisher said the first licenses to grow experimental plots of hemp in the state should be issued by the Arkansas State Plant Board next spring.
