LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) -- Arkansas state representative Trevor Drown has proposed a bill that would prevent members of the Arkansas National Guard or the United States military from obtaining medical marijuana.
The representative from Dover submitted the legislation Monday afternoon.
House Bill 1451 would also restrict members of the Arkansas National Guard or United States military from serving as a “designated caregivers.”
The Arkansas Medical Marijuana Amendment, which was passed by a majority of Arkansas voters in November, allows certain individuals to obtain and administer medical marijuana for qualified patients who are physically disabled.
H.B. 1451 would also make it illegal to possess, smoke, or “otherwise engage in the use” of marijuana on any property of the Arkansas National Guard or the United States military.
