Support for Medical Cannabis in Arkansas

When one of the states touching on the Mississippi River re-legalizes, even just the medical use of cannabis, we will have entered the final stage in the collapse of cannabis prohibition.  Arkansas has Issue 7 on their November ballot, and support for medical cannabis is lining up.


Arkansans for Compassionate Care is a coalition of concerned patients, physicians and allies who agree that sick and dying patients should have access to medical cannabis with a doctor’s recommendation. For tens of thousands of chronically-ill Arkansans, the relief afforded by cannabis helps them live comfortably without harmful side effects. But cannabis is currently unregulated and not legally available.

Issue 7 offers a better choice: controlled access to a medicine that is proven to be both safe and effective, especially against the debilitating effects of chronic illness and harsh medical treatments.

The Arkansas Medical Cannabis Act was certified to appear on the November 2016 General Election ballot on July 7, 2016.

Last Wednesday in Fayetteville, Arkansas, there was a rally in support of Issue 7.

Two Arkansas physicians and a local cancer survivor [spoke] about the benefits of medical cannabis and the importance of voting for Issue 7, the Arkansas Medical Cannabis Act.

“Patients shouldn’t have to suffer when there is a safe, effective and affordable medicine that can relieve their pain. I’ve been working with patients for nearly 30 years to help manage their pain. Cannabis works well and it has far fewer side effects than opiates that are being used today. This is especially important in a state like Arkansas that ranks in the top 10 nationwide for opioid prescriptions.” said Dr. Piechal, a Fayetteville physician.
