Growth leads to expansion for MMJ dispensary The Source – talkbusiness.net

Medical marijuana dispensary The Source recently relocated to a new 20,000-square-foot building along Interstate 49 in Rogers from an almost eight times smaller Bentonville location.

The two-story building at 4505 W. Poplar St., near Outback Steakhouse, has the space to allow for cultivation and production and house administrative offices for the company that’s grown across the state line to include three dispensaries and a cultivation facility in Missouri.

And, if Arkansas voters approve a recreational cannabis ballot item in November, the new Rogers location also has room to grow for that business.

“We built it thinking ahead of what might be to come,” said Erik Danielson, a Fayetteville attorney and an investor in The Source.

CEO Aaron “Moose” Crawley said business increased after opening at the new location in mid-July, and he expects more sales growth if recreational cannabis is approved.

Crawley pointed to a recent study that showed recreational cannabis sales in the first year would be more than double or triple compared to existing medical marijuana sales. He added that the new location has “the capacity to realize those sales.”
