    ARKANSAS, USA (KFSM) — Arkansans have spent $154 million to acquire 24,067 pounds of medical marijuana since the first dispensary opened in the state in May 2019, according to Scott Hardin, a spokesperson with the Arkansas Medical Marijuana Commission.

The medical marijuana industry continues to grow in Northwest Arkansas and the River Valley, with 8,416 pounds of medicine sold in the region alone since August 2019.

There are currently 29 dispensaries operating in Arkansas, with eight more coming in the future.

Currently, 83,779 Arkansans have a patient card. Since April 2020, patient cards that expired were honored by dispensaries. However, starting September 30, cards that have expired will no longer be considered active and must be renewed to make a purchase, according to Hardin. Patients still have the option to do a telehealth visit with a physician to confirm one of the qualifying conditions needed to have a medical marijuana card in Arkansas. A trip to the physician’s office is not required.

The Arkansas Medical Marijuana Commission will host a live stream of their Tuesday (September 29) meeting starting at 4:30 p.m.
