On Wednesday Arkansas Attorney General Leslie Rutledge rejected yet another proposal to legalize recreational marijuana.

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

The A.G.’s office rejected it, citing ambiguities in the measure’s text along with similarities to past marijuana proposals her office rejected.

Attorney General Rutledge rejected at least 17 similar measures last year. This is the second recreational marijuana proposal her office has rejected since January 2.

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