ARKANSAS, USA — The Arkansas Department of Finance and Administration (ADFA) reports that 102,710 pounds of medical marijuana was sold so far since 2019.

In May, medical marijuana patients spent $22.45 million at Arkansas’s 38 dispensaries totaling 3,917 pounds.

“Through the first five months of 2022, an average of $741,000 is spent each day across the state’s 38 dispensaries to purchase medical marijuana,” said Scott Hardin, spokesperson for the ADFA. 

Sales for the first five months of 2022 total approximately $112 million and 19,595 pounds. The Arkansas Department of Health reports 82,762 active patient cards.

Natural Relief Dispensary in Sherwood had the largest month with 377 pounds sold while The ReLeaf Center in Bentonville followed with 314 pounds.

“If this continues, sales for 2022 will be comparable to 2021 sales, which totaled $264 million at the end of the year. State tax collection on medical marijuana was $2.68 million in May,” Hardin said. “Overall, $70.65 million has been collected by the state since mid-2019. Although sales in May were slightly lower than April, the state surpassed a significant milestone as more than 100,000 pounds of medical marijuana have been sold since the first dispensary opened in May 2019.
