Arkansas Cannabis Constitutional Question

Mr Reed will be available after the hearing to address any questions by the press or public on the outcome of the hearing. The court is open to the public as space allows. >> Learn more >> about Event on Facebook. Mr. Reed has for the last 6 years actively addressed the Arkansas General Assembly on the Cannabis Issue in Arkansas with no meaningful progress being made. He has stated on numerous occasions in committee meeting, and to the media that the statement "Cannabis use, possession, and distribution for any purpose remain illegal under federal law" is not only FALSE but misleading!

The Case is # 71CV-16-189, Reed v The State of Arkansas; Leslie Rutledge, Arkansas Attorney General, in her official official capacity as the chief law enforcement/legal officer and lawyer for the State of Arkansas. It was filed November 30, 2016 with THE 20TH JUDICIAL DISTRICT CIRCUIT COURT OF ARKANSAS, located in Clinton Arkansas. Mr. Reed personally delivered the filing of the action to the Governor of Arkansas's Chief Counsel, Mr Justin Tate the following day, December 1, 2016 at the office of the Governor in Little Rock.


His Court Challenge contends that Arkansas State law/s specifically, Arkansas Code:

Title 5 - Criminal Offenses; Subtitle 6 - Offenses Against Public Health, Safety, Or Welfare Chapter 64 - Controlled Substances; Sub-chapter 1 - Uniform Controlled Substances Act; as it pertains to the use, possession, and distribution of "Cannabis" and its use for "Medical" or any other purpose, are not only illegal, but violate the "Supremacy Clause" of the United States Constitution, and that REQUIRING him to possess ONLY prescriptions issued by a doctor who has a practice in Arkansas is a violation of his Civil Rights.

Below is a brief summary of the issues listed in the Court filings.

1. Arkansas code definition of "Marijuana" is in conflict with Federal Code, which is a violation of the U. S. Constitution Supremacy clause.

2. Only one (1) Cannabis plant is defined by federal statute Title 21 USC, therefore all other Cannabis plants with the exception of Cannabis Sativa L are legal for any purpose by omission.

3. Under Title 18 there is no mention of any legally obtained prescription for a controlled substance being grounds for restricting the possession or purchase of a weapon, a right guaranteed by the 2nd Amendment of the U. S. Constitution. Possession of Medical Cannabis (aka Marijuana), with a Doctors Order or Recommendation DOES NOT negate his 2nd Amendment Rights under the U.S. Constitution!

4. The United States Government has legalized the medical and recreational use of "Marijuana" in the District of Columbia, under their control and authority but deny the plaintiff, a U. S. Citizen and resident of Arkansas the same privilege they granted to a district of the United States.

5. Under current enforcement of Arkansas Title 5 and Title 21 USC, the plaintiff is barred from growing the agricultural commodity "Hemp" of which 98% of all hemp products consumed in the United States are imported thus denying him the opportunity of financial gain.

6. Under the current enforcement policy of local, state, and federal authorities as it pertains to Cannabis aka "Marijuana", compared to the "letter of the law" and due to ambiguities between State and Federal code/statutes the plaintiff is being denied his Constitutional Rights in whole or in part, which are guaranteed to him by the Arkansas Constitution and the Constitution of the United States.
