Little Rock -- The Medical Marijuana initiative has been rejected again in Arkansas.

The request for certification of the popular name and ballot title of a constitutional amendment proposed to allow the sale, cultivation, manufacture, distribution and use of the cannabis plant and all its derivatives within the State of Arkansas, and other purposes has said to be rejected due to ambiguities in the text of measure.

Back in 2012, the majority of Arkansans voted "no" to the Arkansas Medical Marijuana Act, keeping the measure off the books.

The state statute sought to make medical use of marijuana legal under Arkansas law and establishing a system for the cultivation, acquisition and distribution of marijuana for qualifying patients through dispensaries.
