LITTLE ROCK (KFSM) — A ballot title and popular name of a marijuana amendment has been rejected by Arkansas Attorney General Leslie Rutledge.

The Arkansas Cannabis Amendment, requested by Mary Berry, was certified by Rutledge in April, but had parts of its text altered since then.

Rutledge cited ambiguities in the changed portions of the amendment.

“[The] current proposal has substantive differences (specifically, the addition of section 4) from the proposal that resulted in certification. As explained below, these additions have caused ambiguities that require rejection of the popular name and ballot title. Moreover, since I am required to reject the popular name and ballot title due to ambiguities in the underlying proposal’s new section.”

    Cannabis has been medically legal in California for TWENTY YEARS. Recreational has been legal in Colorado and Washington, DC for going toward 3. And this Attorney General will have us believe there is something ambiguous. I like the Gov, he’s not always on my side but is a good gov. The AG though has sounded more like a no soup for you robot than someone interested in serving the people’s vote
