LITTLE ROCK, AR – The option to legalize recreational marijuana will fall to voters in the November election as Arkansas Supreme Court agreed on Thursday to add it to the ballot.
Responsible Growth Arkansas was the group behind the push to get it on the ballot, ABC News reports. Justices of the Arkansas Supreme Court granted the request on Thursday.
Originally, the state Board of Election blocked the initiative, so Responsible Growth Arkansas appealed the decision. They were able to gain the qualifying amount of signatures from registered voters in support of the measure. The next step was receiving approval from the board to appear on the ballot.
If the majority of voters decide to legalize recreational marijuana on the ballot, it will begin the legalization process in Arkansas.
