A Maricopa County Superior Court judge dismissed a lawsuit today filed by opponents of Proposition 205, which would legalize cannabis for everyone 21 and older; the goal of the lawsuit was to keep the measure off the November ballot.
“We are pleased with the court’s ruling and that Arizona voters will be able to exercise their right to vote on Proposition 205,” says J.P. Holyoak, Chairman of the Campaign to Regulate Marijuana Like Alcohol (CRMLA). “This was a frivolous and politically motivated lawsuit. If these county prosecutors dislike this ballot measure, they should take their arguments to the voters, not to our overburdened court system. We hope they will accept the court’s ruling and return to waging legal battles against dangerous criminals rather than citizen initiatives.”
