On May 19, 2015, the Campaign to Legalize and Regulate Marijuana has officially filed the necessary paperwork with the Arizona Secretary of State to begin collecting signatures for an initiative to Legalize and Regulate Marijuana in Arizona in 2016.
This new Marijuana Legalization initiative actually seeks to keep marijuana consumers out of jail and prison for marijuana-only offenses.
For example, this new initiative would allow an adult to grow 12 marijuana plants at their home. If an adult violates the law by growing 1 extra plant, (13 marijuana plants instead of 12) that person would only face a Class 3 Misdemeanor.
The “Other Initiative” would allow an adult to grow 6 marijuana plants at their home. If an adult violates the law by growing 1 extra plant, (7 marijuana plants instead of 6) that person would then face a Class 4 Felony, which happens to include a Mandatory Prison Sentence.
If you or someone you love uses marijuana in Arizona, and you don’t want that person to go to jail and prison for Marijuana offenses, we’re confident that you’ll LOVE our initiative!
If you or someone you know wants to operate a marijuana business in Arizona, we’re confident that you’ll LOVE our initiative!
If you own a Smoke Shop and you sell Marijuana Accessories (pipes, bongs, concentrate utensils, etc.) or if you are a consumer who plans to buy any Marijuana Accessories, we’re confident that you will LOVE our initiative.
If you are a Medical Marijuana Patient in Arizona, we’re confident that you will definitely LOVE our initiative!
We will need to collect 150,642 signatures by July 7, 2016 in order to get our initiative onto the 2016 ballot. Our goal is to collect 250,000 signatures, to account for duplicates and mistakes.
The official signature drive for the Campaign to Legalize and Regulate Marijuana in Arizona will kick off within the next week or two.
I know there are lots of you who have been asking us to start collecting signatures right NOW. We LOVE your passion, and Thanks for being so patient with us.
