The Arkansans for Compassionate Care group has been traveling the state to get signatures for their petition to get the Medicinal Cannabis Act on the November 4 ballot. The non-profit needs 62,507 signatures for the initiative to get on the ballot. In 2012 the initiative failed to pass by less than two percent of the popular vote.

Melissa Fults is the director of Arkansans for Compassionate Care and said “We had 500,000 people vote for us in 2012…I think we can get 62,507 signatures.”

Fults also said that there are many people in the state that could benefit from using medicinal marijuana: “There are so many healing components in a cannabis plant, and that’s why it works for such a varied amount of illnesses”.

The Arkansans for Compassionate Care have until July 7 to collect the 62,507 signatures needed. All signatures have to be verified and if the group comes up short, they will have 30 days to collect the full amount.
