Gov. Mike Beebe, who is opposed to the proposal, told reporters on Thursday he doesn’t believe the state’s voters would legalize medical marijuana. Beebe said he’s asked for an estimate of how much it will cost the state to regulate the dispensaries if the measure passes.
"If I understand what I think I understand about it, if it passes, it’s going to require a whole of administration from the health department," Beebe said. "I don’t know where we’re going to get it from."
