Looks like Arizona voters will see recreational marijuana on the ballot in November. Secretary of State Katie Hobbs tweeted the news Monday night.
Thanks to signatures submitted by Smart and Safe Arizona, a citizens initiative to legalize cannabis for adult use in the state, recreational marijuana will be on the ballot.
“After review, the petition exceeded the minimum requirement with approximately 255,080 valid signatures and will be placed on the General Election ballot as Prop. 207,” Hobbs tweeted.
Arizonans will have an opportunity to legalize marijuana for recreational use in November. This will inevitably result in tremendous growth in the legal cannabis industry as new dispensaries to service the recreational market will be licensed across the state.– Adam Trenk, Rose Law Group Partner and Cannabis Department Director
