For today's weed news we go to the great state of Arkansas.
Just over six months ago, on May 10th 2019, the great state of Arkansas saw the doors of its very first medical cannabis dispensary open for business.
And now, the state is reporting that since that day, Arkansas medical Cannabis patients have already purchased well over 3,000 pounds of legal medical Cannabis!
The exact number was actually 3098 pounds and it cost Arkansas patients just over $21,350,000.
Break it down further, the state's most visited dispensary, the Bentonville Releaf Center which has only been in operation since August 7th, has since sold around 375.5 pounds of Trees. That's basically a hundred pounds a month.
The Source in Bentonville, which has been around since August 15th came in a close second with sales reaching 279.46 pounds of medical Trees in just the last three and a half months.
On the other side of the spectrum, their youngest cannabis retail establishment, Northwest Arkansas' Purspirit Cannabis dispensary, which has only been open for business since November 20th, has already sold almost 6.75 lb of weed in just a few days.
Now I know that these numbers don't sound too impressive if compared to places like Cali or Colorado but I think it's important to keep in mind that as recently as July of this year, the entire state of Arkansas had just 15,000 MMJ patients total.
I also feel like it's important to notice that the number of patients in Arkansas is still steadily growing and there have not been any reports of any major issues pertaining to the dispensaries or patients who shop at them.
So shoutouts to all you patients out there and everybody in Arkansas that voted 3 years ago in November to make this shit happen. I know it's taken a while for the shit to get going but now you guys are on your way and it should only get better from here.
And for now, that's what's up with the great state of the Arkansas.
