Initiative to Legalize Medical Cannabis Given Approval by Arkansas Attorney General
Arkansas Attorney General Leslie Rutledge has given approval to an initiative that would legalize the medical possession, use and distribution of cannabis.
Rutledge’s approval now gives advocates the go-ahead to begin collecting signatures in an attempt to place the measure on the November general election ballot; roughly 85,000 signatures from registered Arkansas voters are needed for this goal to be met.
The proposal – a constitutional amendment introduced by attorney David Couch – would allow those with a recommendation from a physician to possess and use medical cannabis, while authorizing dispensaries to distribute the plant (cultivation centers would supply dispensaries).
According to Couch, the campaign plans to bring on paid signature gatherers to assure they make the ballot, and hopes to begin circulating the petition during the March 1st presidential primary.

shutterstock_40672264In a surprising announcement today, former democratic President Jimmy Carter said he was cancer free. He thanked doctors and family for their support and then said medical marijuana had cured his cancer in only 5 months.
Carter would smoke a joint in the morning, smoke a joint at night, smoke a joint in the afternoon to make him feel alright. The former President tried out several different strains of weed until he found one that worked the best.
“Pot is a life saver,” said Carter. “I wish I found this stuff decades ago. Really, really good. Never cared much for alcohol but weed is the medicine I need.”
Carter also gave a special shout out to Mr. Greens Dispensary for their terrific service and wide variety of product.
Carter is now continuing with building his homes for Habitat for Humanity but only gets high after work.
Also, new real medication seems to be advancing quickly in the fight against cancer.
This is amazing to me….
Where do I join to stay informed and help.
Go Arkansas !!!!
If its good enough for a President then what’s wrong with giving it to all people especially our children who will have a very hard life without it
Also,Arkansans for compasionate care had their Arkansas Medical Marijuana Act approved in 2012. It allows qualifying patients to grow their own. They already have 58,000 petioned signatures with only about 30,000 to go. Thier act is the better of the two. It cuts out all the big money side to give patients better access to medicine without the big cost that so many cannot afford.
