Group Files Lawsuit In Arkansas To Get Medical Marijuana Off Ballot

A group called the Coalition to Preserve Arkansas Values has filed a lawsuit in Arkansas Supreme Court trying to get the ballot measure to legalize medical marijuana off the fall ballot, saying it’s misleading and violates federal law.
As you can imagine, those against medical marijuana in Arkansas needs lies to back up their position.
Director of the Arkansas Faith and Ethics Council Larry Page told KARK 4 News that the proposal is a “bad measure based on bad science” and goes on to insist that smoking marijuana is more dangerous than ingesting the synthesized compounds that would be manufactured in its place.
Of course there is absolutely nothing to back up these claims, but those who oppose medical marijuana don’t have much to work with. Cannabis is safer and less addictive than just about any medicine on the market today. So outright lies are the last resort.
Hopefully filing a stack of lies with the Arkansas Supreme Court doesn’t amount to much. Let the voters decide.
