On Tuesday the Arkansas House of Representatives passed H.B. 1353 addressing medical marijuana advertising in Arkansas.

This good bill by Rep. Delia Haak (R – Gentry) and Sen. Cecile Bledsoe (R – Rogers) says that marijuana dispensaries and cultivators cannot use a cross of any color or other symbols commonly associated with the practice of medicine in their advertisements.

Current state law says marijuana dispensaries and cultivators cannot use medical symbols in signs on their property, but it fails to address other types of advertising.

H.B. 1353 closes this loophole in state law.

The bill passed with 78 votes in the Arkansas House; only nine representatives voted against the bill.

The measure now goes to the Arkansas Senate.
