Recreational Marijuana Could Get Legalized in Arizona

AZ Marijuana Legalization

A recent poll in Arizona revealed that most people would like to see marijuana legalized for recreational use.

According to the Behavior Research Center’s poll, 51 percent of Arizonans agree to legalizing recreational marijuana and just 41 percent are disagree.

The National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws (NORML) says marijuana is far less dangerous than alcohol. “You never ever hear ‘[Look at] that smoker starting a bar fight,’ or ‘that marijuana user driving a car and killing five people.’ When is the last time you have heard of that?” said NORML’s Eric Johnson.

Attorney General Tom Horne, the chief law enforcement officer for the state of Arizona, has adopted a wait-and-see approach.

“Colorado and Washington are experimenting with that [recreational marijuana legalization] right now and there are a number of questions that have been answered and will be answered,” said Horne. “It seems to me wise to wait and see what happens; does it have negative effects on society or does it not?”
