— A state legislator who co-chairs the Joint Budget Committee says she supports a ballot measure that would legalize medical marijuana in Arkansas.

Democratic Rep. Kathy Webb of Little Rock on Monday said she voted for the proposal that, if approved, would make Arkansas the first Southern state to legalize medical marijuana. Webb cast her ballot on the first day of early voting.

Webb said she didn’t plan to campaign for the measure.

The proposal has faced opposition from elected officials from both parties. Webb is term-limited and not running for re-election this year, but said she would have voted for it even if she were running.

The proposal would allow patients with qualifying conditions to buy marijuana from nonprofit dispensaries with a doctor’s recommendation.
