Residents of Arkansas are now eligible to be a part of the state sanctioned, legal medical marijuana program. If you are an Arkansas resident (Or in Arkansas with an out-of-state medical marijuana card) suffering from a qualified condition, cannabis may be available for you. Before you get started, there are a few things you should know about what’s legal and how to qualify as a medical marijuana patient in Arkansas.

What Are the Cannabis Laws in Arkansas?

Like other medical marijuana states, Arkansas has a range of regulations regarding who can possess, consume, and purchase marijuana. Currently, recreational marijuana is illegal in the state, and the fines for illegally purchasing and consuming cannabis can be as much as $2,500 dollars, jail time of one year, and a six-month driver’s license suspension for first-time possession of up to 4 ounces. That being said, it’s smart to know what the guidelines are to avoid any run-ins with law enforcement.

In 2016, the Arkansas Medical Marijuana Amendment legalized the medical use of cannabis. There are 18 medical conditions that qualify for the program at this time + any other medical condition or its treatment approved by the Department of Health.
