A.G. Rutledge Rejects Another Recreational Marijuana Proposal

July 12, 2017 | Posted in Marijuana | By

Last Friday Arkansas Attorney General Leslie Rutledge rejected yet another proposed constitutional amendment legalizing recreational marijuana in Arkansas.

The proposal effectively would have let anyone 21 or older grow, buy, and use marijuana. The A.G. rejected the proposal, citing inconsistencies and ambiguities in the measure’s title and text.

By our count, Attorney General Rutledge’s office has rejected at least four recreational marijuana proposals in the past two months alone. Marijuana proponents seem bound and determined to legalize marijuana in Arkansas.

As we keep saying: The endgame for marijuana’s supporters is – and always has been – full legalization of marijuana.
