Yesterday the Arkansas Medical Marijuana Commission announced the five companies who will be authorized to grow marijuana in Arkansas.
The winning bidders are:
-Natural State Medicinals Cultivation of Jefferson County
-Bold Team LLC (Woodruff County)
-Natural State Wellness Enterprises (Jefferson and Jackson counties)
-Osage Creek Cultivation (Carroll County)
-Delta Medical Cannabis Company Inc. (Jackson County)
Each group can only operate one growing center, so Natural State Wellness Enterprises must chose between its two winning proposals.
The Arkansas Constitution lets cities and counties vote to prohibit marijuana farms and stores by circulating petitions to place the issue on the ballot.
