BENTONVILLE, Ark — The ReLeaf Center located in Bentonville is the first medical marijuana dispensary to be approved to open in Northwest Arkansas.

Buddy Wayne, the Superintendent for the dispensary, said they will have a soft opening at 12 p.m. on Wednesday with the grand opening at 12 p.m. on Friday.

According to the Spokesman for the Arkansas Alcoholic Beverage Control Commission Scott Hardin, a glitch in the software connecting the state's database to the dispensary has been why the opening has been delayed.

"Each dispensary has a tracking system of their own that then feeds into the state and allows us to track purchases," Hardin said. 

"We know exactly how much is being sold at any given time, we know how much in total each dispensary has sold."
