Arkansas Extends Deadline for Medical Marijuana Signature Drive
The group behind one of two efforts to legalize medical cannabis in Arkansas won additional time to circulate petitions Thursday after falling short of the required signatures to put its proposal on the November ballot.
Secretary of State Mark Martin’s office told Arkansans United for Medical Marijuana it had verified that 72,309 signatures the group submitted came from registered voters, falling short of the 84,859 needed. But since the group had gathered at least 75 percent of the valid signatures required, it has until Aug. 29 to collect more, Martin’s office said.
