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

The A.G. rejected the measure due to ambiguities in its text.

This is not the first time Attorney General Rutledge has examined a recreational marijuana proposal. By our count, her office has rejected eleven similar measures since May of this year.

I hope you will thank Attorney General Rutledge for continuing to reject these flawed marijuana measures. You can call her office at 501-682-2007 or email oag@ArkansasAG.gov.

As we have said before: So-called “medical marijuana” is just a stepping stone. The endgame for marijuana’s supporters is — and always has been — full legalization.
