Recreational marijuana amendment blocked; medical marijuana business owners conflicted
SHERWOOD, Ark. – A proposed recreational marijuana amendment is rejected by election commissioners, but that does not necessarily mean it will not be on the November ballot.
Today’s decision came after Responsible Growth Arkansas’ submitted nearly 200,000 signatures to the Secretary of State’s office last month.
The board’s ruling had to do with the language in the amendment that does not include a limit on THC proportion, which is responsible for marijuana’s effects on the mind.
“Anyone who wants to use cannabis today has a source of finding cannabis,” said Bryan Faught, CEO of Natural Relief Dispensary in Sherwood. “Legalizing it just makes it easier for them and brings the money where it belongs.” Others in the medical marijuana industry do not agree.
