This year, Arizonans will get the opportunity to vote on legalizing recreational marijuana and electing officials.
The National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws (NORML) published a list that grades the “marijuana friendliness” of Arizona’s elected officials and persons running to become elected officials. The grades are based on an A to F scale.
NORML’s list shows that some of Arizona’s elected officials have received a D for being against cannabis legalization while others have received As and Bs.
