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.

Questions about Registry Identification Cards for qualifying patients and designated caregivers should be directed to the Arkansas Department of Health at or (501) 661-2367. Or please continue to check their website for updates:
