Sisley v. DEA: A Petition for Rehearing Has Been Filed

In follow-up to this post, we are happy to report that Dr. Sisley is still fighting the good fight: on Monday, Petitioners filed a Petition for Panel Rehearing or Rehearing En Banc. Although it’s not uncommon for these to get filed, few and far in between are granted (filing such a petition to rehash the same arguments is considered an abuse of the privilege). However, this specific Petition is one to consider – the Petition writes “the Opinion directly conflicts with multiple Supreme Court decisions; authoritative decisions this Court and every other circuit; and fundamental APA norms.” And of course, beyond that, the reasoning behind the Panel’s Opinion “presents issues of exceptional societal and jurisprudential importance”:

“Substantively, Petitioners asked this Court to reexamine a key misinterpretation of the CSA’s text that fuels the divide between federal and state medical marijuana laws. But don’t be fooled. This case isn’t just about pot. It is about fundamental administrative law questions with weighty separation of powers implications: When is judicial review of final agency action available? Who may obtain it? And which branch says what the law is? In his statement in Standing Akimbo, LLC v. United States, 141 S. Ct. 2236 (2021),

Arkansas's increased cannabis production won't solve the industry's affordability issue – Times Record

On Oct. 1, the opening of River Valley Relief Cultivation on Old Greenwood Road will give the River Valley its first medical marijuana growing facility. 

Scott Hardin, director of communications for the Arkansas Department of Finance and Administration, said Amendment 8, which was passed by voters in 2016 to legalize medical marijuana, limits the number of growers in the state to eight. The state has reached its limit of eight growers.

Fort Smith was approved to grow cannabis in 2020 along with Grady and Hot Springs. They join Pine Bluff, Cotton Plant, Newport, Berryville and White Hall, which were approved in 2018.  

Dispensaries in the state

Amendment 8 limits the number of dispensaries in the state to 40. The state has given 38 licenses to allow dispensaries to sell medical marijuana. The state is divided into eight zones and each zone can have up to five dispensaries.

Budding dispensary provides free classes on growing questions – KOB

Mama and the Girls is working on getting their dispensary license, but in the meantime they want to help individual growers flourish. 

“It’s kinda hard if you are an individual growers, it’s been so stigmatized and hidden a lot of people don’t know what to do or where to begin or who to go to because there aren’t laws there is not a list or somewhere where they can figure it out,” said Arin Goold, co-owner.  

So they decided to become a resource, but because they are not a licensed dispensary yet, they have a few hoops to jump through themselves. 

“One of the first things we did was hire attorneys to run everything by them because it is unclear what is currently legal and what is not currently legal and there is a lot of grey area in between,” Goold said. 

But what is clear, is individuals can have up to six plants with a maximum of 12 plants in one household. But the first step is to find plants to grow. 

“Like any industry it takes a whole lot of sorting through the pieces and not all of us have all the answers
