This is news from Friday, but just in case you missed it, the proposal to place medical marijuana on the November ballot fell way short of the signatures it needed. Arkansas News Bureau reports: “Arkansas for Compassionate Care submitted 65,413 signatures, of which only 36,495 were valid signatures of Arkansas voters, the secretary of state’s office said. The group needs 62,507 signatures to get the proposal on the ballot.” The group has 30 days to gather the valid signatures it needs to have their initiative approved for the ballot. Our opinion is that it’s very unlikely that they’ll be able to accomplish this, considering the massive deficit they’d have to overcome in such a short amount of time. We are watching this closely, however.
