So....when will the will of the people actually be implemented and the suffering allowed to purchase a little surcease from pain? How much longer are we looking at before it is actually on the shelf? Another year?
Inquiring minds want to know.

Just another "ethics" debacle. Who is this "ethics" panel and what is their definition of "conflict"? Its just so ridiculous to even hear the word "ethics" in Arkansas at this point. I have no confidence that anyone in Little Rock knows the meaning of the word. And, clearly, Story/Ballinger knew these were their clients and chose not to disclose it when Story was appointed to the MM Commission. The guy who appointed him, former Speaker Jeremy Gillam, was led by the "Lord" to step down the day before this mess hit the fan. What was he running from? Story and Ballinger think they are teflon dons and nothing will stick to them. Well, we'll see. If I had the feds breathing down my neck like the legislature does, I wouldn't be strutting around, beating my chest and bragging about my innocence. I'll tell you what, why don't we just forget about ethics and this absurd panel until we can rid ourselves of all of the crooks in our state house. Then, we can start over with people who actually understand the concept of ethics. That ain't this crooked bunch.

Jmort you do realize that the initial holdup was due to a suit being filed and Judge Giffen putting a hold on everything? are you suggesting we not have judicial recourse when we believe our rights have been trampled upon ? i'm assuming that this delay can occur in any state governed by our laws.If not please let me know which state is exempt.

Arkansas is exempt from her own laws, you dolt. In addition, the Supreme Court ruled that Griffen doesn't have jurisdiction. So, not much recourse there, right? While I sympathize with those who need marijuana, and I think it should be completely legal, the process by which these 5 firms got approval was downright ridiculous. An independent group should take over and start from scratch. And I only hope the Feds find something on Story, Ballinger, and the rest of those crooks.
