LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - Supporters of a proposed ballot measure to legalize medical marijuana plan to submit more signatures to the Arkansas Secretary of State.
Arkansans for Compassionate Care says it will turn in the additional signatures Monday afternoon.
Last month, the group submitted 65,413 signatures to get the measure on the November ballot but only 36,495 were found to be valid. The group had an additional 30 days - or until Monday - to turn in enough valid signatures from registered voters to reach the 62,507 needed to qualify for the ballot.
State lawmakers have agreed to study the petition process after supporters of three ballot measures turned in thousands of invalid signatures.
