The town of Strong was originally known as Victoria. It was an important shipping point of local farm products until the Great Depression, which hit the farming, cotton, and lumber industries hard. However, Strong is now a flourishing community, boasting over sixty businesses and organizations.
In 2004, the Strong school system consolidated with nearby Huttig District. Students in grades K–12 now receive their education from the Strong-Huttig School District, which consists of Strong-Huttig High School and Gardner-Strong Elementary School. Both schools are located in Strong.
Anglers enjoy lots of opportunities to fish in Union County. There are more than 34 lakes and reservoirs located within its limits. Grand Marais Lake is found approximately 12 miles from Strong. The campgrounds at Grand Marais Lake offer 50 RV and tent campsites with electrical hookups. Visitors can enjoy the beautiful scenery as well as a 5-lane boat ramp, restrooms with 2 shower facilities, multiple picnic areas, and two boat docks. In the southeastern part of Union County, outdoor enthusiasts can enjoy visiting Lake Jack Lee, part of the Felsenthal National Wildlife Refuge. Many species of waterfowl as well as marsh and water birds make their home in the Refuge in the wetland lowland areas and the pine and hardwood forest areas. Lake Jack Lee is located where the Saline and Ouachita Rivers come together.

The Ozark MMJ Card process: a potential patient will submit the patient information form found on our website and upload a record of a qualifying condition. Within one business day, the patient will receive a phone call to schedule an online appointment. Online meetings generally take about 15 minutes, but extra time is reserved so the doctor is able to answer any questions the patient may have. Upon conclusion of the certification, the patient will receive the Physician’s Written Certification required for a State-issued medical marijuana card. We guide every patient through the process of applying with the state of Arkansas, once you have received your medical recommendation from Ozark MMJ Card’s physician.
For patients without documentation of a qualifying condition, an appointment will need to be scheduled with our concierge service to confirm qualification before proceeding with medical marijuana card certification. Per HIPAA regulations, any information obtained between a physician and a patient in a bona fide medical arrangement is completely confidential and private. This is known as Protected Health Information and a third party can only obtain it with the written consent of the patient. Qualification is not guaranteed. Qualifying is based on the doctor’s determination, qualifying conditions, and a patient’s complete medical history.
Ozark MMJ Cards (Arkansas Medical Marijuana Card) was founded by Dr. Daniel Whitelocke to ensure patients receive quality care and have access to alternative medicines including medical cannabis. After extensive research on the benefits of medical marijuana card programs in other states, Dr. Whitelocke decided he wanted to help patients by offering affordable and convenient medical cannabis card certifications.
