Ark. AG rejects wording of medical marijuana plan
LITTLE ROCK — Arkansas Attorney General Dustin McDaniel has rejected the wording of a proposed initiated act that would legalize medical marijuana in the state.
McDaniel rejected the proposal in an opinion on Monday that says the proposal by Arkansans for Responsible Medicine contains ambiguities.
McDaniel's opinion says the proposed measure isn't clear enough about whether patients could grow their own marijuana at home. The opinion also says there's contradictory language in the proposal regarding nonprofit dispensaries.
Attorney David Couch for Arkansans for Responsible Medicine says he plans to address the issues McDaniel raised and resubmit a similar proposal.
The measure must be certified by McDaniel before the group can begin gathering signatures to qualify for a spot on the 2014 ballot.
