“This is new territory I think for a lot of people in Arkansas,” said Dan Greenberg, the chair of the ABC board.
A dispensary is allowed to deliver medical marijuana to patients under the amendment.
The ABC decided that orders must be delivered the same day and only between 9 a.m. and 7 p.m., no late night or overnight deliveries.
The cardholder who ordered the medical marijuana must sign for their delivery and will have their card checked for authenticity.
ABC also looked at rules that would only allow medical marijuana to be delivered to an Arkansas residence, such as an apartment or a house.
It would prohibit delivery to dormitories, hotels, motels, bed and breakfasts or any other commercial business.
While the ABC works through their rules and regulations, Greenberg says this is just the initial phase.
“We want to make sure we hear from the public and we hear from just about all the stakeholders to make sure we’re meeting all our goals,” he said.

Medical Marijuana Amendment
The Arkansas Medical Marijuana Amendment required the creation of an independent commission to oversee the licensing and regulation of cultivation facilities and dispensaries. More information about that commission, the Medical Marijuana Commission, can be found here.
Please be aware however that, at this time, the Department is not issuing permits, taking names or applications, or otherwise authorizing the use of marijuana. Use of marijuana under circumstances outside the limits of the amendment is still illegal in Arkansas.
