AZ Recreational Marijuana Legalization Campaign 2020

A project for a 2020 ballot effort to legalize adult-use( leisure) cannabis in Arizona has actually formally launched.

The project committee Smart and Safe Arizona was produced to run the project. They will attempt to obtain over 230,000 legitimate signatures by July 2020 in order to receive the November 2020 ballot.

The initiative is based upon the very best practices from other states that have legislated recreational marijuana– such as Alaska, Colorado, Maine, Massachusetts and Nevada– while preventing issues that states have experienced, such as a low variety of dispensary licenses offered, high taxes and house growing.

Key points on the 2020 initiative are:

In a smart, safe and responsible way, this initiative will legislate the sale, possession and consumption of one ounce of cannabis (of which 5 grams can be concentrate) for adults a minimum of 21 years of ages.
It generates $300 million in new profits every year (via a 16% excise tax) to money community colleges, public security, public health programs, and facilities.
