On Thursday attorneys for Responsible Growth Arkansas filed a lawsuit against the Arkansas Secretary of State arguing that a proposed amendment to legalize marijuana should appear on the November ballot.
On Wednesday the State Board of Election Commissioners unanimously voted not to certify the marijuana measure for the ballot after determining that the measure’s ballot title was insufficient.
Funding in support of the measure has come primarily from medical marijuana businesses. If enacted, the proposed amendment would make sweeping changes to Arkansas’ medical marijuana laws and allow medical marijuana businesses to grow and sell recreational marijuana as well.
It is unclear just how far-reaching some of these changes to the Arkansas Constitution may be.
