Marijuana commission won’t consider proposed dispensary moves until July – Arkansas Times

Mandy KeenerTAKING A PAUSE: The commission won’t consider moves for a few months.

The state Medical Marijuana Commission on Thursday declined to consider the question of whether a Little Rock dispensary can move to Jacksonville, voting not to entertain location changes until at least July.

The commission voted not to consider any requests for transfers of location until its July meeting, although the date of that meeting has not been set. Commissioner Kevin Case, who made the motion to halt the requests, said the commission should not entertain location changes until after the annual renewal process for medical marijuana business licenses has been completed.

Each of the state’s medical marijuana businesses must renew their license through an application process that begins on April 1 and ends on May 1. The commission will have until June 30 to consider the renewal applications. 

Greenlight Little Rock had requested permission to move to an area of Jacksonville near the border with Cabot. State Alcoholic Beverage Control Division Director Christy Bjornson said the agency had vetted the proposed location and had no issues with it but said the ABC had received letters in opposition and in support of the move.
