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

First cannabis dispensary in Benicia opens – Vallejo Times-Herald

Peanut butter and jelly. Paul McCartney and John Lennon. A bow and arrow. Salt and pepper.

A cannabis dispensary and art gallery?

A ribbon-cutting ceremony was held Saturday morning in Benicia at STIIIZY, and the customers and workers were both hoping that the new cannabis dispensary — the first ever in Benicia — can be a successful combination like the ones mentioned above.

STIIIZY Benicia will contribute over 39 jobs to the area and signals a new era when cities recognize cannabis’ transformative potential and work collaboratively with cannabis companies to positively impact the community, a news release from STIIIZY stated.

The retail space for cannabis will include a 600-square foot art gallery, featuring an exhibition by Arts Benicia Presents that will feature works by artists with studios located in the historic Arsenal District of Benicia, including Paula Boas, Laura Garcia, Joe Garcia, Susan Marcus Sachs and Randall Sextona.

“I think it’s fantastic and classy,” Arts Benicia Executive Director Celeste Smeland said while viewing the gallery. “This is great for Benicia and I’m proud to have another venue to showcase this art.”

Benicia Mayor Steve Young cut the ribbon with a big pair of scissors with STIIIZY Senior Coordinator Victoria Kernen.
