A file photo of marijuana is shown with a screenshot of the first page of Judge Wendell Griffen's order that placed an injunction on the permitting of Arkansas' first five cannabis growers.

The Arkansas Supreme Court this week agreed to speed its review of a circuit judge's ruling that has halted the issuance of Arkansas' first medical-marijuana growing licenses.

To blame The Honorable Judge Griffin for any prudent delays is pure bunk!!

As usual the state has drug this issue out and frustrated the voters again. Not YOUR program state legislature!! This convoluted process is a joke and needs a second look.
I don’t care about delays. I prefer a legal system free of corruption!! If you want to blame someone , look to the State reps who once again have screwed every thing up.
Shame on you all for attacking A Judge known for protecting us little people.

Over 5000 medical cannabis applications have been approved. I know that many people are waiting for the dispensaries to be in place before applying. This delay is intolarable. We need a people's referendum to allow for personal use growth to be implemented immediately. That covers 6 plants per person (3 mature 3 immature) for anyone with a medical cannabis approval who lives 15 miles or more from a dispensary, that would include everyone in the state while the judges and legislators play their games with the law.

I'm sorry but I DON'T think the Pulaski County judge was working in the best interest of Arkansans who are sick & need relief. In my opinion, he is using his position to force his own personal opinion on everyone else. The first rule for being a judge is impartionality. This man is anything but impartial. His antics are performing to the public, seeking personal attention and forcing his opinions on everyone else. He needs to be removed from the bench. Then he can try his luck out in Hollywood.
