Arkansas Democrat-Gazette columnist criticizes state board’s marijuana decision



Arkansas Democrat-Gazette political columnist John Brummett used his Sunday column to call attention to the state Board of Election Commissioners’ decision not to certify the ballot title of an amendment that would legalize recreational marijuana in Arkansas. 

Brummett said the board was afraid to let the people rule, as the state’s motto insists, and that the board doesn’t actually know any more about ballot titles than anyone else.
