NORTHWEST Ark. — A future dispensary for medical marijuana decided to target the northwest portion of Arkansas, rather than Pine Bluff.
The Acanza Health Group’s first medical marijuana dispensary will be located in Fayetteville.
32 dispensaries were approved for licenses in the Natural State by the Arkansas Medical Marijuana Commission.
Acanza scored highest in two zones, Pine Bluff and Fayetteville.
Acanza Health Group Consultant Michael Mayer said last month that dispensaries will help Arkansas grow.
Mayer says the project will bring tremendous tax revenue to the area as well as create jobs that are needed.
