An Arkansas judge has temporarily stopped the state from issuing more medical marijuana licenses in response to a lawsuit filed by a cannabis firm whose MMJ dispensary license application was rejected by regulators.
Pulaski County Circuit Judge Wendell Griffen granted a temporary restraining order sought by Medicanna.
The Pine Bluff-based company sued the Arkansas Medical Marijuana Commission and two other state agencies after it was bypassed for a license to sell medical marijuana.
Medicanna contended in the complaint that the state was wrong in awarding a license to another company that received a lower score on its application.
The judge could decide whether to grant a preliminary injunction against the state at a March 3 hearing.
