There are competing medical cannabis initiatives in Arkansas. One of them, Arkansans for Compassionate Care (ACC), has qualified for the upcoming election. Here’s more:
A citizen-driven initiative that would allow Arkansas doctors to recommend medical cannabis for sick and dying patients will be on the November ballot. Mark Martin, the Secretary of State, confirmed today that Arkansans for Compassionate Care (ACC) collected 77,516 valid signatures—more than enough to place the Arkansas Medical Cannabis Act on the ballot.
If voters approve the Arkansas Medical Cannabis Act, their state will join 25 others and Washington D.C. in allowing doctors to write recommendations for cannabis to alleviate specified medical conditions.
In 2012, ACC sponsored a similar act which came within two percent of becoming Arkansas state law. Support for the issue has only grown in the last four years, and a recent poll by Talk Business & Politics/Hendrix College indicates that nearly 60% of Arkansas voters approve of doctors being able to recommend cannabis as medicine for certain conditions.

Here’s another chance for one of the states along the Mississippi River to open the doors to legal cannabis. When the center falls the whole house of prohibition will collapse. Take a close look at the image with this post — it’s from 2014. Nice grit, Arkansas!
