LITTLE ROCK -- The Arkansas Attorney General has rejected the working of a proposed constitutional amendment that would legalize marijuana in the state.

Dustin McDaniel says the measure by Arkansans for Medical Cannabis contains ambiguities in its text but points out the rejection is based only on the language of the proposed ballot initiative, saying,"Neither the certification nor rejection of a popular name and ballot title reflects my view of the merits of the proposal. This Office has been given no authority to consider the merits of any measure."

Supporters of the proposal need approval of the ballot wording before they can begin collecting signatures in an effort to put the issue on the ballot.

There are two groups within the state working to get medical marijuana on the ballot.  Read more about both efforts here.
