LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - Arkansas Attorney General Leslie Rutledge has rejected a proposed constitutional amendment to legalize marijuana in Arkansas.

The proposal by Mary Berry of Summit seeks to legalize the cultivation, production, sale, possession and use of the cannabis plant and all products produced by the cannabis plant including marijuana.

Rutledge said in her rejection Tuesday that the ballot title is ambiguous.

She writes that without clarifications on several structural issues and issues of intent, she cannot suggest any specific changes to make the proposed amendment acceptable for the ballot.
