Scott Hardin, spokesman for the state Alcoholic Beverage Control division, said an initial search of state inventory systems did not show any products called EdiPure but that a more extensive search would be necessary to be certain if such products are sold in the state.
Searches on WeedMaps and Leafly did not show any dispensaries in Arkansas selling EdiPure products.
