Arkansas Marijuana Legalization Proposal Rejected Again

Arkansas Marijuana Legalization Proposal Rejected Again

By Zachary Babin - February 2, 2016

Associated Press LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) — Arkansas Attorney General Leslie Rutledge has again rejected a proposed constitutional amendment to Arkansas marijuana legalization.

The proposal by Mary Berry of Summit seeks to legalize the cultivation, production, sale, possession and use of the cannabis plant and all products produced by the cannabis plant including marijuana.

Rutledge said in her rejection letter Tuesday that the ballot title is ambiguous. She writes that the ballot title must more fully and correctly summarize the proposal and said that because of the ambiguities she cannot determine precisely what specific changes are needed to make it acceptable for the ballot.

This is the fifth time the attorney general has rejected the proposal in the last five months citing issues of ambiguities.
