The state Finance and Administration Department has announced approval of a second facility to begin growing marijuana for medical use. The release from Scott Hardin:
Following a final inspection by ABC’s Enforcement Division, Osage Creek Cultivation, located in Carroll County (Berryville), was approved to begin growing plants on Monday, March 11. Osage Creek is the second cultivation facility to receive approval as BOLD Team (Cotton Plant) launched production in early January. ABC Enforcement agents are working closely with Natural State Medicinals Cultivation, located in Jefferson County (White Hall), with final approval anticipated for this week. In addition to cultivation facilities, Enforcement agents will also be inspecting dispensaries prior to opening, with the first inspection expected to take place by early April.
Voters approved medical marijuana in November 2016. As yet, none is available for use.
