McDaniel tosses out wording of marijuana proposal

Posted: Updated:

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

 McDaniel said in an opinion released Thursday that there are ambiguities in the wording of the proposed constitutional amendment submitted by Marjorie LeClair of Shirley. McDaniel must certify the proposal before supporters can begin gathering the signatures needed to place it on the ballot.

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

 McDaniel's letter to LeClair notes that at least eight other proposals have been rejected and that it has unclear language regarding taxation.

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