Safer Arizona Updates Their Legalization Initiative and Re-Files with State

Safer Arizona 2018

On February 19, Safer Arizona, a grassroots marijuana legalization political action committee, filed a marijuana legalization ballot initiative in Arizona. A day later, the chairman of Safer Arizona acknowledged that the initiative had flaws, and that they’d be corrected.

On February 21, Safer Arizona re-filed an updated initiative that addresses the initiative’s flaws. Below is a list of the changes made to the initiative:

– Repeal of cannabis prohibition, deletion of cannabis out of the Arizona Controlled Substances Act, and deletion of cannabis out of the Arizona Criminal Code
– Legal possession with no specified limit like alcohol possession
– 48 plants of home cultivation with out requiring a license
– Legalization of hemp
– Free market
– No specified plant limit for license commercial entities
– Gun owner protections
– Parental custody right protections
– Automatic DUI protections for the A3 DUI. (However you can still get an A1 DUI, impaired to the slightest degree)
– Places cannabis under the Department Of Agriculture
– Prohibits the State of Arizona from bringing back prohibition
– Provides post conviction relieve and post conviction expungement for prior nonviolent cannabis crimes
– All remaining penalties reduced to fines except when selling to a minor

Safer Arizona will have until July 2018 to collect the necessary 152,000 signatures to get their initiative onto the November 2018 ballot.
