A ballot initiative to legalize marijuana in Arizona in 2016 is being deliberated by the Marijuana Policy Project (MPP), a national organization for marijuana policy reform, and Safer Arizona, a local pro-marijuana group.
Mason Tvert, spokesman for the Marijuana Policy Project stated, “Marijuana prohibition has proven to be just as huge a failure as alcohol prohibition.”
The Marijuana Policy Project wants to tailor Arizona’s initiative to be like Nevada’s 2016 initiative to legalize and tax marijuana, the Regulation and Taxation of Marijuana Act, which is similar to Colorado’s current adult-use recreational marijuana regulations.
Arizonans are urged to offer support by providing their input via Safer Arizona’s discussion page. Over the next two years, Safer Arizona and AZmarijuana.com will be collaborating to unite Arizonans for the 2016 Arizona legalization ballot initiative.
