    How sad. Does Arkansas have to be last in everything? GW Pharma has proven that whole plant cannabis is safe and effective for many medical conditions. It is available for prescription in Canada and UK and is in clinical trials in the US. The problem is some people just don't have years to wait. If they choose to use cannabis they are a criminal. If not they suffer. The Gov wants to keep people out of the prison system, but not by letting sick people have legal access to an affordable medicine than has been in use for centuries. I know it has caused controversy in CA, but why couldn't AR do it right? Shame on all our so called representatives and senators who won't stand behind compassion.
