Arkansas Recreational Marijuana Stakeholders Speak Out on Both Sides of Number 4


LIVE IN AN EARLY VOTING LOCATION IN TONTITOWN TO BREAK IT DOWN. VOTING NUMBER 4 WILL ALLOW RECREATIONAL USE OF MARIJUANA FOR AGES 21 AND OVER STATEWIDE. BUT MORE QUESTIONS ABOUT WHAT IT WILL LOOK LIKE IN ARKANSAS – IF NUMBER 4 IS SUCCESSFUL – WHERE CAN FUTURE DISPENSES AND MARIJUANA GROW SITES GO? AND WHAT NUMBER 4 REPEALS THAT SOME SAY COULD POSE A DANGER TO CHILDREN? I ASKED STAKEHOLDERS ON BOTH SIDES OF THE ISSUE REP.

Many of our stores in rural areas are actually much further away than that. But when you start looking for a place for a business license in Arkansas, there aren’t many far from a church, school, or daycare. LUNDSTRUM – 47:34 there will be no zoning requirements except around churches, day care centers and schools, so a beautiful park like the one we’re standing in front of. They will put a concession right next to it, so it is a very serious problem. Those on both sides of the recreational marijuana initiative agree on one point, Question 4 should be carefully considered by voters before heading to the polls. HUEY 7:13 nothing in number 4 changes ABC’s ability to regulate us, in fact it improves it. LUNDSTRUM 49:16 there are people on both sides of the island who are fighting against this because it is not a good ballot initiative. AND FINANCE
