Voter initiative to legalize marijuana in Arizona filed
| April 17, 2015 | Updated: April 17, 2015 9:44pm

PHOENIX (AP) A group that hopes to get voters to legalize recreational use of marijuana filed an initiative with Friday with the Arizona Secretary of State's office and will start a signature-gathering campaign to get it on the ballot.

The Marijuana Policy Project and several other activist groups that filed the initiative need to gather more than 150,000 valid signatures by July 7, 2016 to get the initiative on the November 2016 ballot.

The initiative would allow people age 21 years and older to grow and consume small amounts of marijuana. It also would set up a regulatory system allowing licensed businesses to grow and sell marijuana and let local governments oversee or prohibit pot businesses.

Marijuana sales would be subject to Arizona sales tax plus a 15 percent tax to fund education.

2. In Ohio They're Trying To Get Decimalization & The Ability For Each Household To Grow 4 Pot Plants..

I really hope they got enough signatures to put it on the ballot. I know at one point we did & Attorney General Mike Dewine Dewine found a way to fuck that up so they had to start from scratch...

3. A Massachusetts legalization initiative was filed yesterday, too.

 

The one in Nevada has already qualified for the ballot.

And California's is coming.

2016 will be a big year for pot.

4. They will get the signatures. Little doubt.

The whole west coast will be weed legal by 2017 and tax revenues will come in 2018.
Revolting and immoral prohibition will come to an end in most our lifetimes.

I vaped a saliva called blue dream yesterday because I was dragging but wanted to get my 3 k run in ..... It was lovely. Total motivator , tuned up the senses , with almost zero impairment. If I was in Texas or one of those red stated I would be thrown in jail had I left a little of it in my jogging suit pocket and got stopped for whatever reason or profile stopped ....
