FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
PHARMACISTS OPPOSE MEDICAL MARIJUANA ACT
LITTLE ROCK, AR (Oct. 15, 2012) – The Arkansas Pharmacists Association (APA) opposes the “Arkansas Medical Marijuana Act” that will appear on the November 2012 ballot. Because the Act does not use the skill and education of pharmacists and because it creates a direct conflict with federal law, APA opposes this Act as it is currently written.
