Arkansans petitioning for marijuana legalizationPosted by On

Ahead of the upcoming election, Arkansans are signing petitions in their push for legal marijuana, which needs more than 89,000 signatures to qualify for ballots.

LITTLE ROCK, Arkansas — The push to get recreational marijuana legalized on Arkansas ballots is one step closer. 

Canvassers are now out getting signatures. The goal is to get enough to be qualified for the upcoming election to let Arkansans decide whether or not marijuana should be legal for adults.

Responsible Growth Arkansas is one of the petitions trying to get enough signatures to get on the ballot this election. 

Currently they already have thousands of signatures, but they need more before that deadline hits later this summer. 

That’s why they have canvassers out trying to beat the heat and beat the deadline.

“We are very confident that we are going to bring in well over 100,000 signatures in the coming weeks leading up to election day,” said Chairman Eddie Armstrong. “We’ve got northwest Arkansas, northeast Arkansas, especially central Arkansas really covered up.”

By July 8, petitions need to reach a goal of over 89,000 signatures to make it onto the ballot this fall.
