Two West Memphis locations receive renewal from state board

Amid moves by the Biden administration to reclassify marijuana’s legal status at the federal level, several Northeast Arkansas dispensaries will continue operating as normal thanks to their permits being renewed.

On Thursday, May 16, the Arkansas Medical Marijuana Commission met to discuss renewals for dispensaries in the Natural State, including a pair in Crittenden County.

The dispensaries in Northeast Arkansas that had their permits renewed and were found to have no conflicting issues:

• Zone 2 Dispensaries (Fulton, Izard, Stone, and Cleburne Counties) — Fiddler’s Green, 16150 Arkansas Highway 9, Mountain View — Enlightened Heber Springs, 3003 Highway 25B, Heber Springs — Spring River Dispensary, 1418 Highway 63, Hardy

• Zone 3 Dispensaries (Craighead, Greene, Poinsett, Lawrence, Clay, Randolph, Sharp, Independence, Jackson, Mississippi, Cross, Woodruff, Crittenden, and St.

Francis Counties)

• Greenlight Dispensary, 3600 North Service Road, West Memphis

• Delta Cannabis Co., 1151 East Service Road, West Memphis

• NEA Full Spectrum – 12001 Highway 49, Brookland Crop Co., 2929 South Caraway Road, Jonesboro A third dispensary in West Memphis, Body and Mind, recently rebranded as Comprehensive Care, remains in limbo due to continuing issues related to the transfer of ownership of the facility.

In March, the dispensary was shuttered as the ownership transfer was worked out and the facility, located at 203 N.

Oak St., was reopened.

However, the commission said the change needed further review. Medical marijuana sales in Arkansas were $23 million last month.
