proposition 205Arizona officials today announced that the Campaign to Regulate Marijuana Like Alcohol submitted enough valid signatures for their cannabis legalization initiative to be placed on the November ballot; it will appear as Proposition 205.

The group submitted 258,582 signatures at the end of June, far greater than than the 150,642 required to put the measure to a vote of the people this November, though it took until today for the state to verify that enough of the signatures were valid (from registered Arizona voters).

Arizona: Over 150,000 Signatures Collected to Place Cannabis Legalization on November Ballot

arizonaThe Campaign to Regulate Marijuana Like Alcohol in Arizona has announced that they’ve collected over 150,000 signatures on their initiative to legalize recreational cannabis. The group needs to collect 150,642 signatures for their measure to be officially placed on the November ballot, though they’re aiming for 230,000 to account for any invalid signatures (any duplicate signatures, or any signatures from those who aren’t registered Arizona voters).

If palced on the ballot and passed into law, theĀ Regulation and Taxation of Marijuana Act would legalize the possession of up to an ounce of cannabis, and the personal cultivation of up to six cannabis plants, for those 21 and older. State-licensed cannabis retail outlets and cultivation centers would also be authorized, similar to Colorado’s Amendment 64 which was approved by voters in 2012.
