Drug Policy Education Group was started in 2000 by Denele Campbell. Campbell worked for many years fighting for a strong medical marijuana law in Arkansas.
Following the passage of Issue 6, members from Arkansans for Compassionate Care (Issue 7) reactivated DPEG to fight for the strongest possible implementation of the Arkansas Medical Marijuana Amendment.
DPEG is now fighting to make Arkansas Cannabis friendly. We have filed two amendments. The first will legalize cannabis for recreational use for 21 years and older.
The second will expunge records for those who have been convicted for under 16 ounces, 6 plants or less, or paraphernalia. It is time to give these people their lives back.
