LITTLE ROCK (KFSM) — Another proposal to legalize marijuana has been rejected by the Arkansas attorney general.

According to an opinions summary, Leslie Rutledge has turned down a request from Mary Berry to certify marijuana, stating there are “ambiguities in the proposal’s text.”

Rutledge has rejected Berry’s propositions numerous times, giving the same reason behind her opinion.

Berry’s proposal, titled “The Arkansas Cannabis Amendment,” would allow the cultivation, production, sale, possession and use of the cannabis plant (genus Cannabis) and all products produced from the cannabis plant within the entire geographic area of every county in Arkansas, according to records.

Rutledge outlines 10 specific textual ambiguities, and states that there may be more in the proposal.
