— The Arkansas attorney general's office has rejected the wording of a proposed constitutional amendment that would legalize marijuana in the state.

Attorney General Dustin McDaniel's office on Friday said the measure by Arkansans for Medical Cannabis contains ambiguities in its text.

McDaniel's office says the proposal doesn't clearly define the term "legal residents" and is unclear what regulatory authority, if any, the Legislature would have over the cultivation, manufacture, distribution, sale and use of marijuana.

The committee is chaired by Robert L. Reed and has had other versions of its proposal rejected by the attorney general's office.

Supporters of the proposal need approval of the ballot wording before they can begin collecting signatures in an effort to put the issue on the ballot.
