LITTLE ROCK, Arkansas: On Monday, the Arkansas Attorney General rejected a proposed initiated constitutional amendment that called for legalizing medical marijuana. According to Attorney General Dustin McDaniel's opinion the proposed measure did not acknowledge that should the measure be approved by voters, marijuana would still remain illegal according to federal law. Before proponents can circulate petitions to place the measure on the November 2, 2010 ballot, the attorney general must first certify the ballot title. If certified, proponents are required to submit a minimum of 77,468 valid signatures by July 2, 2010.[1][2]
