Reports from the Grow PAC show that since January 1, the marijuana industry has given thousands of dollars to candidates running for office in Arkansas.
Grow PAC represents the Arkansas Cannabis Industry Association, a trade association for medical marijuana in Arkansas.
The political action committee filed its quarterly financial report with the Arkansas Secretary of State last week.
The report indicates that from January 1 through March 31 of this year, Grow donated $16,000 to candidates for office in Arkansas. You can find a list of those candidates on the report here.
The report also shows that Delta Medical Cannabis in Newport and Good Day Farm Arkansas in Pine Bluff each gave the PAC $5,000 during that time.
As we have said many times, marijuana is a multimillion dollar business, and the corporations behind marijuana have a lot of money at their disposal.
As the 2022 election season progresses, voters need to be prepared for the marijuana industry to work hard to push its agenda in Arkansas.
