A medical marijuana educational company visited Fayetteville on Sunday to educate people about the different programs related to the prescription pot.
Pharmacology University travels across the nation teaching patients, legislators, lawyers, doctors and the public about different programs that exist.
The industry is still in its infancy in The Natural State, but interest and curiosity exists for the subject of controlled cannabis regulation, prescription and sale.
The company says they stopped in Fayetteville because Arkansas has the potential to be a leader in the continuing development of the controlled substance.
“Arkansas has one of the greatest legislations anywhere. It’s a very unique, level-headed and insightful program that we really feel might be a reference point and benchmark for the rest of the country. So we are very excited for Arkansas’ potential and they will be accepting applications for dispensaries and cultivation centers over the next 90 days,” Phillip High, Director of Research and Development, Pharmacology University said.
Pharmacology University, which is based in Dallas, will continue traveling throughout the nation educating the public about medical marijuana.
They plan to swing back to Little Rock within the next few months.
