    LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) -- Medical marijuana could soon be back on the ballot in Arkansas.

    David Couch, an attorney with Arkansans for Compassionate Care, said after hearing what opponents and those who voted against it in November had to say, they're making changes.

    "We eliminated the 'grow your own' provision. The first time around, if you lived more than 5 miles away from a medical marijuana dispensary, you could grow your own. That seemed to be the primary concern," he explained.

    Couch said he thinks that change will get them over the hump needed to make medical marijuana legal in Arkansas.

    The group is planning to re-submit their measure to the Attorney General's office next week for approval to gather signatures.
