The Campaign to Regulate Marijuana Like Alcohol in Arizona has surpassed 75,000 signatures and is well on its way to its goal of 230,000 total signatures.
In order to qualify for the November 2016 ballot the campaign must get just over 150,000 valid signatures from registered Arizona voters by July 2016. The campaign is taking precautions by attempting to get more signatures than required by the state.
“Most voters seem to recognize that marijuana is less harmful than alcohol and that we’d be better off if we started treating it that way,” mentioned the campaign chairman. “It makes little sense to criminalize adults for choosing to use a product that is safer than one you can currently buy in a grocery store. Regulating and taxing marijuana like alcohol just makes sense. People recognize that marijuana prohibition has been just as big of a mess as alcohol prohibition was 80 years ago. It’s time for a more sensible approach.”
