A member of the Arkansas Medical Marijuana Commission has submitted his resignation, with plans to focus more time on his family and his job as a lobbyist. This leaves the five person committee with two members to start the year, as two members’ terms are ending.
James Miller, who was appointed by Senate President Pro Tem Jonathan Dismang, submitted his resignation to the state. Miller had intended to only serve for two years, and is currently halfway through a four-year term.
Miller also stated that he believes that the most important and difficult work of the commission has been accomplished. In July, cultivation licenses were issued. Dispensaries are expected to be in operation by April 2019.
