Arkansas AG’s Letter Says Medical Marijuana Commission Member Got Offer Of A Bribe

The reported bribe attempt was by Natural State Agronomics

An Arkansas Medical Marijuana Commission member was offered a bribe by one of the unsuccessful applicants for the state’s first cannabis growing licenses, the commissioner told authorities.

The reported bribe attempt by Natural State Agronomics — now the subject of a law enforcement investigation — was made public Thursday after the Arkansas Supreme Court unsealed a letter submitted to the court earlier this week by Arkansas Attorney General Leslie Rutledge.

The report is the latest question raised about the process to license Arkansas’ first medical marijuana growers. Unsuccessful applicants have questioned the integrity of the process. On Thursday, before the letter was unsealed, state attorneys and attorneys for the companies that stood to receive licenses defended the process before the state Supreme Court.
