November 4, 2022 – Little Rock, AR – The Poultry Federation of Arkansas is taking a formal stance against Issue 4 of the General Election scheduled to take place on November 8, 2022.
“We are most concerned about the safety of all poultry industry employees. Recreational marijuana would create significant safety concerns for employees who work in processing plants, operate equipment, and deliver the finished product,” stated Marvin Childers, President of The Poultry Federation.
“The impact on the end consumer will be higher costs in the grocery store due to increased risks and the associated insurance costs as well as further reducing the already insufficient labor supply. We believe a safe workplace is more important and we encourage everyone to vote No on issue 4,” stated Childers.
