The Arkansas Medical Marijuana Commission will look at hiring an outside group to score the state’s dispensary applications.

The five members voted unanimously Monday to explore the idea of a consultant grading the 228 applications, with the final authority to award licenses still resting with them.

The commission will further discuss the change at a meeting July 12, along with cultivation facility licenses.
