‘Medical Cannibis Act’ Ballot Title Certified by Arkansas Attorney General

 

LITTLE ROCK, AR — Attorney General Dustin McDaniel has certified a ballot title proposal to legalize marijuana for medical use in the Natural State.

The “Arkansas Medical Cannibis Act” was submitted by Arkansans for Compassionate Care, who previously had several other attempts rejected due to ambiguities in the language.

McDaniel issued the opinion Thursday, writing, “The purpose of my review and certification is to ensure that the popular name and ballot title honestly, intelligibly, and fairly set forth the purpose of the proposed amendment or ac,” and that neither his certification nor rejection of the ballot title does not reflect his view on the merits of the proposal.

The Arkansas Medical Cannibis Act must now collect more than 62,000 signatures before it can be put on the 2014 ballot.
