Arkansas Attorney General again rejects marijuana proposal

Posted: Updated:

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - Arkansas Attorney General Dustin McDaniel has again rejected the wording of a proposed ballot measure aimed at legalizing marijuana in the state.

 McDaniel on Wednesday cited several problems with the wording of the proposed constitutional amendment submitted by Marjorie LeClair of Shirley. McDaniel must certify the proposed amendment before supporters can begin gathering the 78,133 signatures needed to place it on next year's ballot.

 The proposal calls for repealing all state laws related to the cannabis plant. McDaniel said it was unclear whether the proposal would only repeal existing laws or forecloses any future ones. McDaniel rejected the wording of a previous version of the proposal last month.

 The proposal is among several marijuana legalization measures that have been submitted to McDaniel for next year's ballot.
