HOWARD COUNTY, AR (KAIT) - One Arkansas county is trying to keep medical marijuana production and sale out of their area.

Howard County will have the option to vote for or against the growing and dispensing of medical marijuana in the area when they head to the polls in November.

According to Little Rock television station Fox 16, many residents want to keep cultivation facilities and dispensaries out of the area to make it less accessible to people abusing the drug.
