Arkansas AG rejects wording of marijuana proposal

Posted: Updated:

LITTLE ROCK (AP) - Attorney General Dustin McDaniel has again rejected the wording of a proposed ballot measure that would legalize marijuana in Arkansas.

McDaniel said Monday that there were ambiguities in the wording of a proposed constitutional amendment submitted by Marjorie LeClair of Shirley. McDaniel must certify the proposed amendment before supporters can begin gathering the signatures needed to place it on next year's ballot.

The proposal calls for repealing all state laws related to the cannabis plant.

McDaniel's letter to LeClair says the proposal had unclear language regarding how marijuana would be taxed.

McDaniel's office has approved language on two separate marijuana-related issues, allowing supporters to gather signatures in an effort to put the items on upcoming ballots. Both proposals are related to the medicinal use of marijuana.
