How far are we from being able to fill a prescription? Our doctor has already told us it will benefit our son. Please hurry.

There is no such thing as a "Prescription" for cannabis, as it is still a Schedule 1 Drug, according to the DEA. The DEA also controls the licenses of ALL doctors, and will yank their license, and arrest any doctor who writes one. You CAN, however, get a RECOMMENDATION, which means your doctor should be agreeable to filling out the correct forms for you, qualifying the patient to the state, allowing the issuance a medical card. Since you state he has already agreed that your son will benefit from this plant, I don't see a problem. I guess it will all depend on whether your sons' doctor will register to become one of those who are allowed to that.

From what I understand, we may not see any product for sale until around the end of the year, or dispensaries until July. It can take 3 - 4 months to get cannabis product from field to store.

Search for marijuanadoctors and sign up with them (click the state of Arkansas on the map), so you can be notified when you can apply for your sons' card, and get updates on the Arkansas situation. I did, and I am hoping they can help us with the info we need to find a doctor and get the right details we need, to navigate this new capability in our state.
