Last week Arkansas Attorney General Leslie Rutledge rejected yet another proposal to legalize recreational marijuana.

Like virtually every other recreational marijuana proposal, the measure would have let adults and companies grow, buy, sell, and use marijuana for any reason.

The A.G.’s office rejected it, saying that the proposal suffered from the same “fundamental shortcomings” that have caused the office to reject other recreational marijuana proposals.

Attorney General Rutledge rejected at least 17 similar measures last year. This is the third recreational marijuana proposal her office has rejected so far this year.

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