FORT SMITH, Ark. — The runner-up to get a medical marijuana cultivation permit has joined a lawsuit against the State of Arkansas regarding the selection process for growing licenses.
River Valley Relief Cultivation of Fort Smith, along with three other companies, are arguing various flaws in the process gave unfair advantages to the licensees.
Judge Wendell Griffen ruled in favor of the original plaintiff, Naturalis Health, Wednesday.
Griffen wrote the scoring process was unconstitutional and called the ratings “null and void.”
The attorney general’s office is reviewing his decision.
