    LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - Arkansas Attorney General Dustin McDaniel has rejected the wording of a proposed ballot measure aimed at legalizing marijuana in the state.

    McDaniel on Friday cited several problems with the wording of the proposed constitutional amendment submitted by Marjorie LeClair of Shirley. McDaniel must certify the proposed amendment before supporters can begin gathering the 78,133 signatures needed to place it on next year's ballot.

    The proposal calls for repealing all state laws related to the cannabis plant.

    The proposal is among several marijuana legalization measures that have been submitted to McDaniel for next year's ballot. Arkansas voters in November rejected a proposal to legalize medical marijuana in the state.
