Fact Sheet – Medical Marijuana On The Arkansas Ballot


Little Rock, Ark. – When Arkansas voters head to the polls in November there will be two medical marijuana measures before them.

The Arkansas Center for Health Improvement has released a new fact sheet that provides a description of the initiatives as well as information about medical marijuana laws in other states and scientific study of medical uses of marijuana.

Arkansas Medical Cannabis Act is the initiative by Arkansans for Compassionate Care which would authorize the Arkansas Department of Health (ADH) to oversee non-profit “cannabis care centers” and to allow “qualifying patients” who register with ADH to receive cannabis for a “qualifying medical condition,” which is defined by the act.

Arkansas Medical Marijuana Amendment of 2016 is the measure by Arkansans United for Medical Marijuana which seeks to make medical marijuana use legal under state law. The amendment authorizes use of medical marijuana if prescribed by a physician if the patient suffers from a “qualifying medical condition.”
