Arkansas, who has the most qualifying conditions of all the MMJ states I think, I might be mistaken, has had their process that was running smoothly, delayed.
Apparently, there were conflicts with some of the granting commission and other problems I heard. I also have seen where Washington County, aka where the University is located, has already voted an ordinance in not allowing dispensaries. When I lived in OR when it was gonna be voted on, many lil towns tried to pass ordinances from noise and smell, etc. Many passed. But they didn't last. 3 years later and they've all been voted on the town's commissions or they've changed their minds. That tax money has mucho power, lol. Peace and Karma
