Supreme Court places marijuana amendment on ballot provisionally; UPDATE: Responsible Growth comments



The state Supreme Court provisionally placed an amendment to legalize recreational marijuana on the November ballot and will rule later whether votes on the measure should be counted, according to a ruling issued Wednesday. 

Last week, the state Board of Election Commissioners voted unanimously not to certify the ballot title for Responsible Growth Arkansas’s amendment to legalize marijuana for adult use. Responsible Growth appealed the decision to the Supreme Court the next day.
