In November 2016 Arkansas voters approved medical marijuana through the passage of a constitutional amendment, known as Amendment 98, the Arkansas Medical Marijuana Act of 2016. The law allows qualifying patients to purchase and use medical marijuana from a licensed dispensary if certain criteria are met.
One of the requirements is a physician certification of qualifying conditions. In addition, application must be made and an ID card must be obtained. Information on this process, including a list of qualifying medical conditions can be found HERE.
Unless requirements are met and an ID card is obtained, USE OF MARIJUANA IS STILL ILLEGAL.
