Arkansas Attorney General Rejects Marijuana Plan
Arkansas Attorney General Dustin McDaniel has rejected the proposed wording for a prospective ballot item that would let voters decide whether to legalize marijuana in the state.
McDaniel's office on Thursday said the name and ballot title on the proposal sponsored by Rockie Barley of Malvern is ambiguous and has "misleading tendencies."
McDaniel says changes are needed to more fully and correctly summarize the proposal.
McDaniel has approved two other marijuana-related ballot proposals for the 2016 ballot.
One would legalize medical marijuana and the second would allow voters to decide whether to approve making it legal to grow and possess marijuana and all products derived from the cannabis plant.
