Little Rock billionaire donates $250,000 to group opposing marijuana amendment



Little Rock billionaire Ron Cameron, the low-profile but politically active CEO of chicken company Mountaire, donated $250,000 to a committee opposing the legalization of recreational marijuana in Arkansas, according to financial reports filed with the state. 

Cameron made the donation last month to Safe and Secure Communities, a committee formed on July 13 to oppose the legalization of marijuana. In documents filed with the Arkansas Ethics Commission, the committee stated it will “educate the public about the consequence of legalizing marijuana for personal use and advocate for the defeat of an amendment to the Arkansas Constitution allowing the regulated sale of adult use cannabis in the state.”
