Arkansas Medical Marijuana Amendment Added To November Ballot
LITTLE ROCK (KFSM) — A second medical marijuana amendment will be added to the ballot for the November election after it gained enough verified signatures to be added to the ballot.
The Arkansas Medical Marijuana Amendment of 2016 will appear on the ballot after supporters collected enough valid signatures. They needed nearly 85,000 signatures to be put on the ballot, and the group turned in 97, 284 valid signatures.
Arkansas came close to legalizing medical marijuana in the 2012 election, where the initiative failed by a vote of 51 percent against to 49 percent for the amendment.
