FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. — Siloam Springs has temporarily banned medical marijuana businesses in city limits, officials say.
The Siloam Springs City Clerk’s office said the board of directors on Tuesday approved a 180-day moratorium on medical pot businesses.
Little Rock Attorney David Couch, who sponsored the Arkansas Medical Marijuana Amendment, called the move unconstitutional.
Couch said the amendment specifically states prohibition of medical marijuana businesses can only be decided by a vote from the people. Since the board of directors voted on the moratorium, Couch said that move violates the amendment.
