ARKANSAS – The potential legalization of marijuana continues as November draws closer.

Last month, Attorney General Leslie Rutledge approved a ballot title that would make medical and recreational marijuana legal in the state.

The Arkansas Cannabis Amendment outlines regulations, growth permits, even how the drug will be taxed to make money for the state.

The amendment would allow doctors to prescribe medical marijuana, which U.S. congressional candidate Steve Isaacson argues would benefit people with chronic pain, cancer and even PTSD.

The Arkansas Cannabis Amendment needs 85,000 signatures to be on the November ballot. It currently has over 20,000.
