(VIRTUAL) Learn About Medical Marijuana in Arkansas

April 20 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm CDT

This virtual program is livestreamed on the library’s Facebook and YouTube accounts.

This program is being hosted by popular demand, as one of the most requested topics chosen in a poll we posted about law-related topics.

On May 10, 2019, medical marijuana was purchased legally for the first time in Arkansas in Hot Springs. Today, there are over 70,000 active medical marijuana card carriers. Over the past two years, these card carriers have purchased over 36,000 pounds of medical marijuana amounting to approximately 242 million dollars in sales. Despite these significant numbers, many Arkansans remain clueless about medical marijuana, its rules, and the issues it has created.

Eric Wilson, a licensed attorney, will provide a brief overview of the laws that control medical marijuana in Arkansas, popular questions that come up about medical marijuana, and other popular issues that intersect with marijuana in Arkansas.

To ask questions in advance, email pkagebein@gclibrary.com. You can also ask questions live via Facebook or YouTube comments.
