Last week Arkansas Attorney General Leslie Rutledge rejected yet another proposal 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 fourteen similar measures since May of this year.
To put it simply, marijuana’s proponents are not content with so-called “medical marijuana.”
As we have said before: “Medical marijuana” is just a stepping stone. The endgame for marijuana’s supporters is — and always has been — full legalization.
