The following is a press release from Family Council Action Committee.
LITTLE ROCK – On Monday reports filed with the Arkansas Ethics Commission showed the group Responsible Growth Arkansas had raised more than $13 millions of dollars to pass marijuana amendment Issue 4. In spite of this spending, Talk Business & Politics polling shows support for Issue 4 has fallen to 50.5% in Arkansas as of mid-October.
Family Council Action Committee Executive Director Jerry Cox released a statement, saying, “Issue 4 was crafted by marijuana insiders. It rewrites the medical marijuana amendment that voters passed in 2016, and it gives a handful of businessmen and bureaucrats control over the cannabis industry in Arkansas. Issue 4’s supporters are spending millions of dollars to persuade voters to back their measure, but Arkansans see this amendment for what it is. Issue 4 is the kind of crony politics that Arkansans are sick and tired of. We are confident that voters will reject marijuana amendment Issue 4 on Election Day.”
