2016 Arizona Marijuana Legalization Efforts Begin

Arizona Marijuana Legalization 2016

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, ‚ÄúMarijuana prohibition has proven to be just as huge a failure as alcohol prohibition.‚ÄĚ

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, AZmarijuana.com¬†and other organizations will be uniting Arizonans for the 2016 Arizona legalization ballot initiative.
