Arkansas Bill Seeks to Ban Medical Marijuana Edibles

 A new bill seeks to limit the way medical marijuana patients could consume the drug in Arkansas.

If passed, Senate Bill 333 would outlaw what are known as marijuana "edibles." Edibles provide a way to ingest the drug and feel the effects without having to smoke it.

Senator Gary Stubblefield's legislation bans "combining medical cannabis with food or drink," which is how the edibles are formed and used. It does provide for exceptions in cases where patients qualify.

This bill is one of two dozen filed this session, aiming to tweak or regulate the medical marijuana amendment passed by voters last November.

This bill follows another bill seeking to ban the smoking of medical marijuana.
