FORT SMITH (KFSM) — One of the sixth-place finishers in the highly-competitive sweepstakes for one of Arkansas’ five prized cannabis-growing licenses has filed a protest with the state Medical Marijuana Commission ahead of the regulatory panel’s much anticipated meeting on Wednesday.

In a letter from Wright Lindsey Jennings attorney Erika Gee, River Valley, Relief Cultivation of Fort Smith alleges that fifth-place finisher Delta Medical Cannabis Company of Jonesboro provided “misleading, incorrect, false or fraudulent information” to the commission. The Little Rock attorney representing the Fort Smith partnership then asks the five-person panel to halt the final award of medical marijuana licenses until the claims are investigated.
