It would be the first dispensary located outside of Hot Springs
Arkansas Alcoholic Beverage Control, which oversees medical marijuana sales and cultivation in the state, is finalizing approval for a third dispensary to open its doors. Arkansas Natural Products, located in Clinton, was inspected by ABC agents earlier this week. Spokesman Scott Hardin with the Arkansas Department of Finance and Administration, which includes ABC, said in an interview with KUAR News that it was a positive visit and the dispensary is expected to open next week.
“Now it’s just a matter of ABC administration and leadership signing off and saying everything is in place. As soon as that letter is sent,” Hardin said, “they can then open their doors.”
It would be the first dispensary outside of Hot Springs, where the state’s first and second dispensaries are now in operation. With the opening of the third dispensary, Hardin expects medical marijuana sales to continue rising.
