Arkansas A.G. Rejects Two Recreational Marijuana Proposals in 24 Hours

December 19, 2017 | Posted in Marijuana | By

Last week Arkansas Attorney General Leslie Rutledge’s office rejected two different recreational marijuana proposals in just 24 hours of each other.

The A.G. rejected both proposals — one for being vague and the other for failing to acknowledge that marijuana would still be illegal under federal law even if the amendment passed.

The amendments would have let adults and companies grow, buy sell, and use marijuana for any reason.

By our count, Attorney General Leslie Rutledge’s office has rejected seventeen recreational marijuana proposals since May of this year.

To put it simply, marijuana’s proponents are not content with so-called “medical marijuana.” As we have said before: “Medical marijuana” is just a stepping stone. The endgame for marijuana’s supporters is — and always has been — full legalization.

A.G. Rejects Fifteenth Recreational Marijuana Proposal Since May

December 5, 2017 | Posted in Marijuana | By

Last week Arkansas Attorney General Leslie Rutledge rejected yet another proposal to legalize “recreational” marijuana in Arkansas.

The A.G.’s office said there were “fundamental defects in the submission” that prevented the measure from being approved. By our count, her office has rejected fourteen similar measures since May of this year.

To put it simply, marijuana’s proponents are not content with so-called “medical marijuana.”

As we have said before: “Medical marijuana” is just a stepping stone. The endgame for marijuana’s supporters is — and always has been — full legalization.

This week Arkansas Attorney General Leslie Rutledge rejected yet another proposal to legalize “recreational” marijuana in Arkansas.

The A.G.’s office said there were “fundamental defects in the submission” that prevented the measure from being approved. By our count, her office has rejected thirteen similar measures since May of this year.

I hope you will thank Attorney General Rutledge for continuing to reject these flawed marijuana measures. You can call her office at 501-682-2007 or email oag@ArkansasAG.gov.
