Action Committee Responds to Marijuana Proposal

The following press release was received from the Family Council Action Committee based in Little Rock.

Friday, October 4, 2013

On Thursday afternoon Arkansas Attorney General Dustin McDaniel certified a group trying to legalize so-called “medical” marijuana to begin gathering petition signatures to place their measure on the November 2014 ballot. On Friday Family Council Action Committee President Jerry Cox released a statement.

“Ultimately, this is about legalizing marijuana,” Cox said. “This proposal is very similar to the one Arkansans voted down last November, and it still has a lot of the same problems: It’s vaguely-worded; marijuana stores will open in Arkansas; and people will still be allowed to grow their own marijuana.”


Family Council Congratulates Josh Duggar

Wednesday, June 19, 2013

On Wednesday Family Council President Jerry Cox issued a statement congratulating Josh Duggar on becoming the new director of Family Research Council Action.

“I’ve known the Duggar family for many years,” Cox said. “Jim Bob and I worked together when he was a state legislator. It’s good to see his son Josh continuing that tradition of Christian service by accepting the job as director of Family Research Council Action. Josh is bright and full of ideas, and I wish him the best as he and his family transition from Arkansas to D.C. We look forward to working with him.”
