It is shown that the noncausality of the Rarita-Schwinger equation in an external electromagnetic field can be avoided by the substitution of a subsidiary constraint by a subsidiary differential equation. As the number of degrees of freedom increases, the theory represents two kinds of articles with spin l/2 and spin 3/2. Some consequences are studied.
