Patients face lines on first full day of medical marijuana sales


HOT SPRINGS — Hundreds of patients stood in line in the rain early Saturday morning, waiting to buy medical marijuana from the first dispensary in Arkansas to open its doors. Doctor’s Orders RX, on U.S. 270 east of Hot Springs, attempted to open Friday, but glitches with state-mandated software delayed the first full day of business until Saturday. The dispensary opened 2 1/2 years after voters approved Amendment 98 to the state constitution legalizing medical marijuana.
