LITTLE ROCK, Ark. — Applicants seeking to open medical marijuana businesses in Arkansas are suing the commission overseeing the proposals.
The lawsuits were filed last week and placed under seal in Pulaski County, the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette reported. They allege the Arkansas Medical Marijuana Commission wrongly assessed hundreds of applications last month when it rejected bids for failing to meet minimum requirements.
Attorney Alex Gray prepared the complaints for the applicants. He said his firm became involved after the prospective entrepreneurs received rejection letters from the state.
