Last week Arkansas Attorney General Leslie Rutledge rejected yet another attempt to legalize “recreational” marijuana in Arkansas.

The A.G.’s office said there were “fundamental defects in the submission” that prevented the measure from being approved. By our count, her office has rejected twelve 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

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.
