The fight to legalize cannabis in Arkansas has gained more gusto than ever before with a new group of activists lobbying to get a reform initiative featured on the state’s 2022 ballot. Filed on Thursday, Nov. 4 with the secretary of state’s office, the latest legalization effort comes courtesy of Arkansans for Marijuana Reform. In an interview with Marijuana Moment, Campaign Director Melissa Fults said: “This is the right thing to do. I think it is a very good middle-of-the-road deal. I think it will serve the consumers, it will serve the industry well and I think it will serve the people that don’t want to be consumers but are concerned about [the market] being the Wild West.” In the event that the campaign is featured on the 2022 ballot and successfully voted on, state residents would be able to legally use and buy recreational cannabis in Arkansas by February 2023. Before this can happen, Arkansans for Marijuana Reform must collect more than 89,000 petition signatures as well as have the state’s election commission approve their ballot title.
