November 15, 2019 by erfa5t8
The Arizona Cannabis Chamber of Commerce( AZC3), a personal company comprised of pro-cannabis Arizonans, has released the details for its proposed cannabis legalization effort. The initiative requires to be approved by the Arizona Legislature for it to be allowed onto November 2020 ballots. The effort will compete with the Smart & Safe Arizona effort that was submitted with the state earlier this year. One of the key aspects of AZC3′s effort is the a great deal of marijuana retail establishments (dispensaries ) that would be enabled,< a href=" https://tucson.com/news/local/group-unveils-proposed-legislation-to-legalize-recreational-marijuana-use-sales/article_8b9c23b1-81f7-50e0-8aa7-e971f062d6bc.html" target=" _ blank"
rel=” noopener noreferrer” > Tucson.com reports. Bottom line in AZC3′s initiative:
Allows for as much as 230 dispensaries
25% of the new licenses would be committed to backwoods in Arizona
Ownership of up to 1 oz. of cannabis
16% cap on excise taxes put on purchases
Industry to be controlled by the Arizona Dept of Liquor Licenses and Control
Convictions expunged for previous marijuana ownership of 1 oz. or less
If this effort makes it onto the November 2020 ballots. Both could be authorized by citizens, which would develop a little dispute.
The Arizona Legislature may not approve the proposed effort for the ballots, however, if it does, it would likely set off just enough disunity amongst Arizona citizens to trigger another failed effort at marijuana legalization by means of tally measure– similar to in 2016.
If Arizonans desire adult-use cannabis to get legalized in 2020 they will need to unite and all elect one initiative– the Smart & Safe Arizonaeffort.
