Arkansas AG Rejects Wording Of Arkansas Marijuana Proposal
Attorney General Dustin McDaniel has rejected a request to certify the popular name and ballot title of a proposed constitutional amendment that calls for repealing the prohibition of cannabis in Arkansas.
McDaniel rejected the request from Lt. Col. Marjorie LeClair in an opinion on Monday because he said there were ambiguities in the text.
The proposed measure must be certified by McDaniel before LeClair could begin gathering signatures in an effort to qualify for a spot on the 2014 ballot.
McDaniel has certified the popular name and ballot title of one of two proposed initiated acts that would legalize medical marijuana.
LeClair's proposal calls for repealing the prohibition on the cannabis plant, not just legalizing medical marijuana.
