If you’re in Arkansas this group needs your help.
A group plans to begin gathering signatures soon to try and put a proposal to legalize recreational marijuana on the ballot in Arkansas next year.
The Drug Policy Education Group on Wednesday submitted a proposed constitutional amendment that would allow licensed dispensaries to sell marijuana for recreational use. Arkansas voters legalized medical marijuana in 2016 and dispensaries began selling the product in May.
The group also submitted a proposed amendment that would allow people convicted of low-level marijuana offenses to petition courts for relief, including release from incarceration and expungement of their conviction.
The group has until July 3, 2020, to gather the needed 89,151 signatures from registered voters to qualify for the November 2020 election ballot. The state Board of Election Commissioners must also review the ballot measure’s wording.
Sadly, here in Texas we CANT do any ballot measure or voting to change the law. We need a large amount of people putting pressure on the law makers and force them to file a bill and then make sure it goes all the way through the process.
Yes, you guessed it, we have a solution for that. We are planning a 20,000+ person “sit in” at the Capitol come 2021 to force their hand. Some people ask why wait until 2021? Because that is the next time the law makers are in session and the opportunity to change history is at its best.
Sign up to be a part of the 20,000+ person sit in for WHOLE PLANT ACCESS!
