LITTLE ROCK, Ark. — Attorney General Leslie Rutledge has rejected a proposed constitutional amendment for the 2018 ballot that would legalize Arkansas marijuana in the state.
The proposal by Mary Berry of Summit would allow for the cultivation, production, distribution, sale, possession and use of the cannabis plant and all products taken from the plant, including marijuana.
Rutledge wrote in an opinion released Monday that the proposal is being rejected because of ambiguities in the text, including whether or not a license is required, whether taxes are allowed and whether a parent could provide medical marijuana to a minor child.
Rutledge in April approved a similar ballot proposal by Berry for the November 2016 election.
Rutledge spokesman Judd Deere said Monday’s rejection does not affect the 2016 proposal.
