A third medical marijuana dispensary has been approved to open in Arkansas.

An Alcohol Beverage Control spokesman on Tuesday said Director Doralee Chandler approved Arkansas Natural Products in Clinton to open for business after reviewing its inspection results. The opening date for the facility is now at the discretion of the dispensary's ownership.

The dispensary is among 32 businesses that have been licensed to sell medical marijuana under a measure voters approved in 2016. Two dispensaries opened in Hot Springs last month and have sold about $1.34 million in medical marijuana, selling about 202 pounds.

As of June 17 in Oklahoma, 138,230 patient, 879 caregiver, 3,211 grower, 1,548 dispensary and 859 processor licenses have been approved.
