(KARK) LITTLE ROCK, Ark.- The Arkansas Supreme Court unsealed a letter Thursday from Attorney General Leslie Rutledge, who claims that a company applying for a medical marijuana cultivation permit tried to bribe a member of the Medical Marijuana Commission.
In the letter to Chief Justice Dan Kemp, Rutledge says Natural State Agronomics offered a bribe to a commission member, but the commissioner said that he did not take the bribe.
Rutledge also pointed out in the letter that the commissioner gave the company “the second-highest score that he awarded to any entity in the application process”.
The Attorney General also mentioned that there was “no specific law or regulation requiring the commissioner to report a bribe attempt”.
The full letter is below.
