REQUEST WITHDRAWN: Greenlight Helena has withdrawn its request to move to Stuttgart.

The state Medical Marijuana Commission will hold off until next month before considering a dispensary’s request to move from Helena-West Helena to Stuttgart, where city leaders are expected to submit letters on the proposed move.  

Greenlight Helena at 2000 Martin Luther King Jr. Drive in Helena-West Helena proposed a move to a six-acre property along Highway 165 in Stuttgart. The location is just south of Mack’s Prairie Wings sporting goods store and a Tractor Supply business. 


Commission chairman James Miller made a motion to table the proposed change of location until next month’s meeting to allow more time for people to weigh in. After the meeting, commission spokesman Scott Hardin said commission staff expect Stuttgart Mayor Norma Strabala and city leaders to submit letters regarding the move but did not know if they were in support or opposition. 

William “Griffin” Christine is the majority owner of Greenlight Helena, with 55.45%. John David Mueller of Leawood, Kansas, is the second-largest shareholder, at 34.38%, followed by Lance Gray of Helena with 10.18%. 


In other business, the commission approved ownership changes at cultivator Leafology, processor Dark Horse Medicinals, and dispensaries Hash and Co. in Pine Bluff, Berner’s by Good Day Farm in Little Rock and Good Day Farm Texarkana.
