LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - Arkansas Attorney General Leslie Rutledge has rejected a proposed constitutional amendment to legalize marijuana in the state.

Rutledge wrote to Little Rock attorney David Couch that the text of the proposal is ambiguous.

The proposal calls for the legalization of marijuana for medical use.

This is the second time in recent months that Rutledge has rejected a proposal to legalize marijuana in Arkansas. In October she said a proposal by Mary Berry of Summit was also ambiguous.
