LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - Arkansas Attorney General Leslie Rutledge has rejected three proposals to amend the state constitution, including two to legalize marijuana.

Both marijuana proposals were offered by Robert Reed. One would allow the cultivation, manufacture, distribution, sale, possession and use of cannabis, and all products derived from the cannabis plant. The second would end the prohibition against the cultivation, manufacture, distribution, sale, possession and use of cannabis, and products from the plant.

Rutledge wrote Monday that both have ambiguities that led to their rejection.

Rutledge also rejected a proposal by Tom Steele to repeal a constitutional amendment approved in November that includes an increase in legislative term limits to 16 years. Rutledge wrote that the proposal’s ballot title and text are ambiguous and that it fails to summarize its provisions and effects.
