LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) — A second medical marijuana dispensary has been approved to begin sales in Arkansas and is expected to open next week.

The state Department of Finance and Administration on Friday said it authorized Green Springs Medical in Hot Springs to open after it passed an inspection. The company says on its Facebook page that it plans to open on Monday.

The department earlier this month formally signed off on its first dispensary, Doctor's Orders RX in Hot Springs. The two dispensaries are among 32 that the state has licensed to sell medical marijuana. The state has also licensed five cultivation facilities to grow the product for dispensaries.

Arkansas voters approved a measure legalizing medical marijuana for certain conditions in 2016.
