Responsible Growth releases first ad, focuses on law enforcement



The industry-backed group trying to legalize recreational marijuana in Arkansas launched its first television ad this week, promoting the amendment as a way for voters to support police officers since a portion of recreational marijuana’s tax revenue would be dedicated to law enforcement.  

A vote for the issue is “a vote to support our police,” the ad’s narrator states, amid images of police officers and police cars. The 30-second ad mentions cannabis only once, stating that the amendment will “safely legalize the sale of cannabis to adults 21 and older.”
