    Arkansas can’t legalise cannabis 'because of a typo'

    Plans to legalise marijuana in Arkansas have been scuppered - by spelling errors and “ambiguities in text”. Arkansas Attorney General, Leslie Rutledge, said “errors of grammar, punctuation and spelling” were the reason behind her rejection of the constitutional amendment, the Associated Press reports. The proposal, written by Marry Berry, a resident of Summit, Arkansas, called for all residents to cultivate, produce, possess and use cannabis and anything produced from the plant.

    Arkansas just passed a law that will let rapists sue victims who want an abortion

    A pregnant woman's husband will have the power to stop her from having an abortion, even in cases of spousal rape, under a new law introduced in the US state of Arkansas. Most second trimester abortions will also be banned by Act 45 - the Unborn Child Protection From Dismemberment Abortion Act - which will make it possible for husbands to sue doctors who carry out abortions for civil damages, or get an injunction to block the termination. The pro-life law, which was pushed through in just two months by the state's Republican government, prohibits all dilation and evacuation...

    Judge Swapped Sex and Pills for Freedom

    For four years, an Arkansas judge allegedly offered a secret plea deal to women who appeared in his court: have sex with him and get out of jail free. Judge Tim Parker of Carroll County, Arkansas, resigned in the final days of term last month, after an Arkansas judicial oversight group accused him of letting women out of jail without bond, or trading them cash or prescription pills, in exchange for sexual favors. Parker allegedly conducted his business over jail phones, calling women behind bars, or requesting favors from their family and friends.

    Arkansas prepares to execute 8 men in 11 days: Justice, or an ‘assembly line of death’?

    Patricia Washington sees a simple calculus: If you take someone’s life, you better be prepared to lose your own. The death penalty is just, she believes — an unsurprising view in this rural town a short drive from the state prison that houses death row. Executions have come up a lot lately in conversations at Washington’s work, a tiny eatery tucked into an Exxon service station off Highway 65.
