While the proposed amendment to legalize marijuana in Arkansas has received the most publicity in the upcoming Nov. 8 election, there are actually four amendments to the state constitution on the ballot.
Proposed amendments can be placed on the ballot by the General Assembly or by a petition from registered voters. The first three issues were referred to the electorate by the General Assembly, and the fourth was brought by popular petition.
Issue No. 1, if passed, would allow members of the General Assembly to call a special session if two-thirds of the members of the House of Representatives and the Senate sign a request for a call.
