Ark. voters may see multiple marijuana proposals

Posted: Updated:

Arkansas voters could potentially see multiple attempts to legalize medical marijuana on the ballot next year.

Two groups are vying to put similar proposed initiated acts before voters in 2014.

This week, Attorney General Dustin McDaniel certified the popular name and ballot title of a proposal from Arkansans for Responsible Medicine. That organization plans to start gathering signatures in an attempt to qualify for a spot on next year's ballot.

McDaniel on Tuesday also rejected a similar proposal from another group, Arkansans for Compassionate Care 2014. A spokeswoman for that organization says the group plans to address what McDaniel said were ambiguities in the proposal and resubmit another similar measure.

A third group is awaiting a decision from McDaniel after it resubmitted a revised proposed constitutional amendment to legalize marijuana.
