On Monday the editorial board at the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette released an editorial against Issue 4, the marijuana amendment.

The editorial posed a straightforward question: Will marijuana fix what’s wrong in Arkansas? The answer, the editors argued, is No.

Among other things, the editors noted that Little Rock is experiencing a crime wave, ACT scores in Arkansas have fallen, and children aren’t reading at grade level. “Will legalizing marijuana fix that?” the editors ask.

After addressing several arguments in favor of marijuana legalization, the editorial concludes, “Will marijuana fix what’s wrong in Arkansas? If your answer is no, then please vote that way on Nov. 8.”
