Medicinal marijuana was legalized by Arkansas voters in November of 2016, and after over two years, dispensaries in the state are set to open.
In Northwest Arkansas, the owner of the ReLeaf Center in Bentonville said he will be ready for patients by mid to late June.
Health Group personnel in Fayetteville said they hit a roadblock, and at this time are unsure when it will be able to open. 
It’s unclear when Fayetteville’s Valentine Holdings or the Arkansas Medicinal Source Patient Center of Bentonville will open for customers. 
Meanwhile, Oklahoma had medicinal marijuana ready for patients within 6 months of voters approving it.
See the graphics below about how quickly Oklahoma had the medication available and to see how long it will be before medicinal cannabis is available for patients in Missouri.
