Last week Arkansas Attorney General Leslie Rutledge rejected yet another recreational marijuana proposal.
The proposal would have allowed anyone 21 or older to buy, sell, grow, or use marijuana in Arkansas. The A.G.’s office rejected the proposal, citing ambiguities in the measure’s text.
If all of this sounds familiar, that’s because it is not the first time our Attorney General has rejected a recreational marijuana proposal. In fact, this is at least the third measure the A.G. has rejected in the past six weeks.
As we keep saying: Marijuana proponents are not content to stop at “medical marijuana.” The endgame is–and always has been–full legalization of marijuana.
