Why is Texarkana Getting Another Medical Marijuana Dispensary?

Why are we getting another one? According to dariknews.com, there was a new rule that state regulators recently changed giving out two more medical marijuana dispensary licenses. The changed ruling means the 2 remaining licenses will go to companies that previously applied for them and are next in line based on the companies' scores. This is going to the Arkansas Legislative Council in February.
