LITTLE ROCK — The Arkansas attorney general’s office has rejected the proposal to ask voters to approve the medical use of marijuana in the state.
The opinion from Attorney General Dustin McDaniel’s office says the proposal contains numerous ambiguities and contains numerous grammatical errors. The opinion suggests a “lack of focus” in the preparation of the proposal.
The proposal by Robert Reed, the chairman of Arkansans for Medical Cannabis, proposes to allow the legal use of marijuana for those with terminal diseases, debilitating illnesses and those who suffer severe pain, seizures or spasms.
Reed said Monday that the language in the proposal was nearly identical to unsuccessful legislation first introduced in the Arkansas Legislature in 1999.
