Last week Arkansas Attorney General Dustin McDaniel gave the go ahead to a group hoping to get medical marijuana back on the ballot in the Natural State in 2014.
The medical marijuana initiative failed by a narrow margin during the November 2012 general election.
State AG 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.
They have to gather about 62,000 signatures before the public can have their say.
McDaniel Aug. 6 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.
