FORT SMITH, Ark. — People from across the natural state met in Fort Smith this weekend to learn how they can get involved in the state’s budding medical marijuana industry.
The Arkansas Cannabis Industry Association hosted its first Dispensary Agent Training seminar.
Potential candidates learned what they need to know to cultivate or sell the drug legally.
The event also educated attendees about the health benefits of the drug.
“I did a lot of research myself”, said Rick Pruden who attended the event. “I knew some of the bare bones. They’re going over some of the information in a lot more detail.
I’ve gotten a lot more resources”.
We’re told nearly 500 tickets were sold.
The group will host a similar training session in Little Rock this March.
