Ark. AG rejects petition to drop marijuana laws

Posted: Updated:

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - Arkansas' attorney general's office has rejected language proposed for a petition that would ask voters to end the state's anti-marijuana laws.

Marjorie LeClair hopes to place a marijuana-related ballot issue before voters next November. Its language would repeal all laws restricting the production, distribution and sale of cannabis or any products derived from the cannabis plant.

The attorney general's office said Monday that it had rejected the proposed language, saying it was ambiguous.

Similar measures suggested by LeClair previously also were found to be ambiguous and were also rejected.

Language on two separate marijuana-related issues has been approved so their supporters can collect signatures in an effort to put the items on upcoming ballots. Those issues are tied to the use of marijuana in medical settings.
