Arkansas Attorney General Approves Medical Marijuana Ballot Language

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - Arkansas Attorney General Dustin McDaniel has approved the wording of a proposal for next year's ballot legalizing medical marijuana.

McDaniel on Thursday certified the proposal submitted by Arkansans for Compassionate Care, clearing the way for the group to begin gathering the 62,507 signatures needed to place the proposed initiated act on next year's ballot.

The proposal would allow patients with qualifying conditions to purchase marijuana from nonprofit dispensaries or to grow their own marijuana if they don't live close to a dispensary. A competing marijuana legalization measure certified by McDaniel is nearly identical, but does not allow for patients to grow their own.

Arkansans for Compassionate Care was behind a medical marijuana proposal that voters narrowly rejected in November. Several other marijuana legalization proposals have been submitted to McDaniel's office.

2. I was so surprised last time that the vote was so close. I really think it has

a chance of passing.

4. It failed because it was on the back of the ballot and many

didn't turn it over. I had a friend who did that. He was so excited to vote for MMJ (75 and ex gop) but failed to look carefully at his ballot and didn't find the initiative.

5. Oh, no. I hope everyone looks for it this time.

I have spoken to a lot of people of all ages and most favor passage.
