Talk show host Montel Williamswill have a news conference at 10:30 a.m. Thursday at the State Capitol to endorse the medical marijuana initiative on this year’s ballot. He has multiple sclerosis and uses “medicinal cannabis” to treat symptoms. Maybe the Family Council and the Arkansas Baptist Convention can pull a Gomer Pyle and make a citizen’s arrest while he’s in town. This is a moral issue, see, and pain relief is not a valid purpose for use of a naturally occurring plant. Or so the good Christians have told us.
