Arkansas Voters Have Passed Initiative 6 to Legalize Medical Cannabis
Under the approved law, those who receive a recommendation will be authorized to use and possess medical cannabis so long as they register with the state. The measure establishes a system of licensed and regulated dispensaries and cultivation centers.
The passage of Initiative 6 comes just two years after a similar measure was narrowly rejected at the 2014 ballot. Another medical cannabis measure, Initiative 7, was on the ballot as recently as a couple weeks ago. That measure was removed by the Arkansas Supreme Court due to a technicality.
