A state commission has decided that Arkansas residents hoping to grow medical marijuana will have to pay an annual fee of $100,000 to operate a cultivation facility, according to a report from Arkansas Online. Growers will also need to have access to cash to ensure the stability of their business. The commission decided Tuesday to require an applicant to have a $1 million bond or assets worth $1 million and be able to show $500,000 in cash liquidity. Those fees are in addition to a $15,000 application fee approved last week.
