Arkansas Democrat-Gazette editorial blasts marijuana use, attempts at legalization



The Arkansas Democrat-Gazette blasted marijuana use yesterday in an editorial that expressed dismay at an attempt to legalize recreational marijuana in the state. Headlined “The latest dope,” the editorial expressed a clearly negative view of marijuana and Responsible Growth Arkansas’s proposed constitutional amendment but seemed to stop short of actually opposing the measure. 

So, we asked Democrat-Gazette Editorial Page Editor David Barham if the editorial should be taken as opposition to Responsible Growth’s proposed measure. We haven’t heard back. We’ll let you know if we do.
