KATV Channel 7 News will present a town hall style meeting to debate the Arkansas Medical Cannabis Act and the Arkansas Hemp and Marijuana Legalization Amendment on Thursday, September 3 at 7 p.m. on the campus of UALR at the Stella Boyle Smith Concert Hall.
If enough signatures are collected, the act and the amendment (and possibly a third proposal) will be on the ballot for Arkansas voters to decide in the 2016 November General Election.
At the meeting, a panel will discuss the issue of medical marijuana, and there will be input from guests in the audience. KATV and Talk Business & Politics will also release new polling data on the subject that shows how Arkansans feel about the topic right now.
The town hall meeting will be broadcast on sub-channel 7.2, and live streamed at www.katv.com.
