Federal government won't try to interfere with state marijuana laws

The Obama administration said today it would not sue to interfere with laws in 20 states legalizing marijuana to varying degrees. Two states even allow recreational use.

This eliminates another one of the arguments against decrminalization or medical marijuana initiatives in Arkansas.

The group that lost a close vote on medical marijuana in 2012 (48.5 percent approval) has had a revised proposal approved for petitioning for the 2014 ballot. It removes some minor parts that opponents used in 2012, particularly a provision to allow people to grow pot if they lived a long distance from an approved dispensary.
