Arkansas Group Resubmits New Medical Marijuana Plan

This is the 6th time Arkansans for Compassionate Care resubmitted the revised plan, after Attorney General Dustin McDaniel shot it down calling out its ambiguities.
LITTLE ROCK, AR- The fight to legalize medical marijuana in Arkansas is still an uphill battle for one Little Rock group.

Arkansans for compassionate care resubmitted a new plan, after the Attorney General rejected it. This is the 6th time Arkansans for Compassionate Care resubmitted the revised plan.

Attorney General Dustin McDaniel shot it down for the 5th time calling out its ambiguities. Officials with Arkansans for Compassionate Care said they fixed up the language and even got legal experts to look over it, so they're hoping McDaniel approves it this time.

This proposal would allow patients with qualifying conditions purchase medical marijuana from nonprofit dispensaries.

"If he kicks it out every time, we'll go over there every two weeks and turn it in and just keep going until there is nothing left that he could possibly disapprove of and then we are going to draw our signatures, we're gonna be on the ballot." Melissa Fults Phone Interview

Melissa Fults says tens of thousands of Arkansans rely on medical marijuana for treatment.

McDaniel is expected to come out with a decision in a couple of weeks. If approved, the group would have to get about 62,500 valid registered voter signatures to get on the 2014 ballot.
