A project for a 2020 tally effort to legalize adult-use
( recreational) cannabis in Arizona is anticipated to introduce before July. Stacy Pearson, a political expert at Methods 360, whose company is running the project, stated they’ll have an entire year to collect signatures if they release by July, AZ Mirror reported. 237,645 valid signatures are required by July 2, 2020, for the campaign to receive the November 2020 ballot.
Pearson stated they will model the Arizona effort on the best practices from other states that have actually legalized recreational marijuana– such as Alaska, Colorado, Maine, Massachusetts and Nevada– while avoiding problems that states have actually experienced, such as number of dispensary licenses offered, high taxes, public marijuana usage and house cultivation.
” The last four or five years of this have been light years in regards to industry development and maturity,” Pearson said. “So, this isn’t an experiment anymore in the Western states. There are things that have worked that can be duplicated and things that have not worked in other states that can be avoided. It’s a smarter, better looked into, more mature market and project.”
In March, the project committee Smart and Safe Arizona was produced to run the project. They are now accepting donations on their website to support the project efforts, and they’ve already raised $100,000 from < a href= "https://www.harvestinc.com/state/arizona/" target=" _ blank" rel =" noopener noreferrer ” > Harvest Enterprises Inc, which operates 9 dispensaries in Arizona.
Arizonans for Responsible Drug Policy, the project that opposed adult-use marijuana legalization in 2016, was well moneyed and supported– and likely will be once again. They raised over $6 million in 2016, with $5 countless that being directly raised through Governor Doug Ducey’s anti-cannabis campaigning efforts.
