Marijuana Legalization States
This November, residents in a few states will be voting on whether to legalize marijuana for adult recreational use, similar to Colorado and Washington. Voters in Alaska, D.C., Florida, and Oregon will decide the fate of recreational marijuana in their state.

Marijuana legalization is expected to pass into law in all these states. This is because of the many economic and health benefits that - Colorado and Washington have proven - come from the new industry. For instance, marijuana legalization generates millions in tax revenue and creates new jobs. As well, marijuana helps people find natural relief from many health ailments.

Arizona, Nevada and a possibly few other states plan to have marijuana legalization initiatives on their ballots in November 2016.

23 states and the District of Columbia currently have medical marijuana laws implemented. 11 more states have low-level THC medical marijuana laws. Most states that allow medical marijuana tax it through a general sales tax, just as over-the-counter medications are typically taxed.

The Marijuana Policy Project (MPP), is a group that lobbies to end the prohibition of marijuana. They have campaigns to legalize marijuana with ballot initiatives in a number of states, including Arizona, California, Maine, Massachusetts and Nevada. They are also helping with legislation efforts in New Hampshire, Rhode Island, and Vermont.

Tucson Dispensary
The Tucson City Council voted to remove zoning restrictions on medical marijuana cultivation centers. Council members and advocates said the change will greatly benefit the city’s economy.

Vicky Puchi-Saavedra, a Tucson dispensary owner, said the decision will help generate new marijuana industry jobs and improve revenue for the city because cultivation facilities can now be bigger than the previous 3,000 square-feet limit. Many Tucson dispensaries have been purchasing medical marijuana from Phoenix dispensaries, where there are no zoning restrictions, in order to keep up with demand. These Tucson dispensaries were nearly paying retail price, making it impossible to lower costs for their customers.

“It is like trickle down economics. You don’t just hire a grower, you hire bookkeepers, you hire warehouse managers…” said Puchi-Saavedra. “Aside from the sales tax we are paying, city sales tax, so we are helping the city instead of moving our warehouse out of Tucson, back into Phoenix.”

Councilwoman Karin Uhlich stated that Tucson area patients were suffering the consequences of strict marijuana cultivation regulations.

“Most of the product was being cultivated in Maricopa County and in the Phoenix area, which added cost to patients in our area,” stated Uhlich. “And so we are really monitoring what is happening across the state as the law gets implemented and recognizing that being overly restrictive simply ads cost to patients in Tucson.”
