WEST MEMPHIS, AR (KAIT) - Medical marijuana dispensaries are set to open in mid-May, but three of them in West Memphis are not anywhere close to being done.
Three of the approved dispensaries in the Northeast Arkansas zone will be in West Memphis.
Memphis television station WATN reports that two of the listed West Memphis addresses had only stakes in open fields and the third was an unoccupied building.
Governor Hutchinson told WATN that they are monitoring those dispensaries closely and constantly.
“Our law enforcement will cooperate very carefully with our partners in other states to make sure that we share information and enforce the law,” Gov. Hutchinson said.
To date, nearly 11,000 medical marijuana ID cards have been approved in Arkansas.
