Arkansas Supreme Court allows new group to intervene in recreational marijuana case



The state Supreme Court determined on Friday that a new group formed to oppose recreational marijuana can intervene in a case that will determine the fate of a proposed constitutional amendment to legalize recreational marijuana in Arkansas. 

The Supreme Court ordered Save Arkansas from Epidemic, formed this week by Fairfield Bay Police Chief David Burnett and Little Rock attorney AJ Kelly, to file its answer to the original complaint in the case brought by Responsible Growth Arkansas by Monday at 4 p.m. The group will also file a brief by August 30, the court said.
