Ark. National Guard Reminder: Marijuana Use Prohibited


FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (KNWA) — The Arkansas National Guard reminded all service members on Thursday that use of medical and recreational marijuana could result in military justice. 

In its July memo, the Arkansas National Guard wrote, “Regardless of what other states’ laws may now alow, any use or possession of marijuana by members of the Arkansas National Guard, for recreational or medical use, is prohibited. Further, any possession on Arkansas National Guard property is prohibited.” 

Even though medical marijuana was legalized by Arkansas voters in 2016, service members could see non-judicial punishment, administrative action or military justice if they use it, the Arkansas National Guard said. 

This reminder came via a video posted online. Watch it below.
