Last week Arkansas Attorney General Leslie Rutledge rejected a proposal to legalize recreational marijuana in Arkansas.

The proposal would have let adults and companies grow, buy sell, and use marijuana for any reason.

The A.G.’s office rejected the measure, citing “fundamental deficiencies in the proposed measure’s text and ballot title.”

Attorney General Rutledge rejected more than a dozen similar measures last year.

As we have said before, marijuana’s proponents aren’t content with “medical marijuana.” The endgame is — and always has been — full legalization.
