LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - Arkansas Attorney General Dustin McDaniel has rejected the proposed wording of a prospective ballot item that would let voters decide whether to legalize marijuana in the state.

McDaniel’s office on Friday rejected the proposal offered by Mary Berry because of ambiguities in the text of the measure and tells Berry to “redesign” both the proposal and the ballot title.

McDaniel has approved two other marijuana-related ballot proposals for the 2016 ballot. One would legalize medical marijuana and the second would allow voters to decide whether to approve making it legal to grow and possess marijuana and all products derived from the cannabis plant.
