Arizonans won’t get the opportunity to vote on recreational marijuana this November. Safer Arizona’s initiative failed to obtain the required number of signatures to qualify for the ballot.
Safer Arizona needed 150,642 signatures to qualify for the November ballot but gathered about 75,000, KTAR News reports. The chairman of Safer Arizona, David Wisniewski, claims the reason for the initiative’s failure is lack of support from dispensaries.
Efforts for marijuana legalization in 2016 failed by less than 3% when Arizona voters chimed in.
Perhaps a new initiative during a Presidential election year will fair better.
