LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KARK) – Medical marijuana sales in Arkansas are approaching $220 million, with record sales happening on New Year’s Eve.

According to Scott Hardin, a spokesperson with the Arkansas Medical Marijuana Commission, there have been 33,189 pounds of medical marijuana, which is $218 million, sold in Arkansas since the first dispensary opened in mid-2019.

There are currently 32 dispensaries operating in Arkansas and six that are working toward opening. Thirty-eight dispensaries have been licensed.

According to Hardin, sales average approximately $665,000 a day across the state.

The Arkansas Medical Marijuana Commission spokesperson said the state saw a record day of sales on December 31, 2020, with more than $1.22 million sold. The commission did not know why the record-selling day was on New Year’s Eve. According to Hardin, there is no rule that people use their benefits by the end of the year.
