Medical Marijuana Compliance

Arkansas Medical marijuana regulations

Since the passage of the Arkansas Medical Marijuana Amendment of 2016 and its implementing statutes and regulations, marijuana related businesses and consultants have recognized the need for an attorney with a pharmacy background to provide legal advice and assistance in navigating this new and developing area of the law in Arkansas.

Darren O’Quinn is a pharmacist and practicing attorney, who has taught pharmacy and healthcare law for over twenty-five years, with actual experience representing healthcare professionals and other clients on issues involving controlled substances before the DEA, FDA, licensing boards, administrative agencies, employers, and state and federal courts. He has the background and experience necessary to identify and mitigate issues before they arise, and provide competent representation on issues that do arise.

Pharmacist & attorney, Darren O'Quinn

Although the Arkansas Legislative and the Executive branches have worked hard to implement the Arkansas Medical Marijuana Amendment of 2016, there are still many unresolved issues. Indeed, federal laws still criminalize possession and use of marijuana—so a medical marijuana patient, dispensary, consultant, or cultivator is still at risk. Even without criminal enforcement, however, employees may be at risk for drug screens at work, there are insurance issues, and significant implications still abound for gun possession and banking.

In sum, if you are involved in any aspect of medical marijuana as a patient, consultant, or business you need an experienced pharmacist-attorney like Darren O’Quinn to guide you through the process.
