A brief legal examination of Arizona recreational marijuana

By Terrance Thorton | Independent Newsmedia

Arizona voters have approved the legalization of recreational use of marijuana in the 2020 November election, which will allow residents 21 years or older to consume pot free of criminal ramifications.

Adam Trenk breaks down vital facts of Prop. 207

As Arizona begins its 21st-century swing-state period as initial vote tallies came in one thing came clear: 60% of the electorate favor recreational use of tetrahydrocannabinol, one of 113 cannabinoids found in the native cannabis plant.

With the passage of Prop. 207 Arizona residents — 21 years or better — will be able to:

  • Possess use and cultivate marijuana;
  • Amend criminal penalties for possession;
  • Impose a 16% excise tax on all sales to fund public programs;
  • Enacts local regulation of marijuana licensees; and
  • Allows the expunge process of marijuana offenses.
