Earlier this year, the Arkansas Department of Health (ADH) suspended expiration dates on patients’ medical cannabis registration cards due to the COVID-19 pandemic, but this temporary extension is set to expire on Sept. 30, according to an ArkLaTexHomepage.com report.

Cards with an expiration date on or before Sept. 30 will expire on that date, and patients must complete a renewal application by Sept. 11 to allow for processing time, the news outlet reported.

Physicians will still be allowed to certify patients via telemedicine until further notice, according to ArkLaTexHomepage.com.
