(I know i'm posting this on the TX forum but this side seems to get more activity)

I'd like to hear what TXK people think about this upcoming vote. It's time to stop putting people in cages for something as harmless as marijuana and this is our chance to FINALLY do something about it.

I would not like to see it pass because when something becomes legal, it becomes socially acceptable. Marijuana is known as the gateway drug for a reason. I agree the punishment is too extreme in many cases.

Is it going to be voted on by the people of the state or the lawmakers of the state? I smoked quite a bit of pot in my younger days, an I can say it is guaranteed to cure pain and aggravation. I am sure it has many good medicinal qualities, but I am also sure that it does lead to particular lifestyle choices, and introduces people to other people that may have access to "bigger and better" drugs.

If it is ever legalized in full, the government will find a way to tax and regulate it so that the average Joe Potsmoker won't be able to afford it anyway. What about de-criminalizing the growth of it too? Oh, that's right...then the government couldn't control it or tax it..

I guess I am for medical marijuana, but against governmental regulation of it. Decriminalization I am all for.

I've never done any illegal drug. That being said I like to see government oppression stopped on every front. If I lived in Arkie I'd vote for it.

Unfortunatly it does not mean me, as I live on the Texas side of the state line, but if I did live on the Arkansas side, I would vote YES to medical marijuana.

At first glance it may look like a good idea, but I believe California did the same thing and I have heard horrible stories about how that has turned out. I imagine it matters how it is written, and from what I understand this is poorly written where it is not specific and leaves gray areas that could cause problems in the future. I would vote NO to THIS one, maybe they can do better later. But anything that looks like California does NOT sound good to me.

I believe I would be more for legalizing it regardless of medical uses or not. It would be treated like alcohol and there would not be as much shady activity, legalize all drugs and take it off the streets!

The Arkansas Supreme Court denied a petition to keep the medical marijuana proposal off the ballot. This is a great day for those citizens who appreciate having a say in how we are governed. When this passes, Arkansas will become the first southern U.S. state to legalize medical marijuana.

Arkansans will have the final word in November--NOT Jerry Cox and his "values".

Looks like our state's about to get a little more natural.
