Yesterday Attorney General Leslie Rutledge’s office rejected yet another recreational marijuana proposal.

The proposed constitutional amendment would have made it legal to grow, sell, possess, and use marijuana for recreational purposes. The attorney general rejected the proposal, citing ambiguities in its text.

By our count, this is the eighth recreational marijuana proposal submitted to the A.G.’s office since May of this year.

As we keep saying: So-called “medical marijuana” is just a stepping stone. The endgame for marijuana’s supporters is – and always has been – full legalization of marijuana.
