Pre-rolled Legislation

Pre-rolled Legislation

The Arizona Legislature kicked off its 53rd session last week, bringing with it the possibility for some changes to the state's marijuana laws.

Cash the Crops

Recreational marijuana has proved to be a boon for states that have legalized it, and this year four states will add that bounty to their budget.

High Gear

More good news out of the courts this week as the Arizona Court of Appeals ruled that the presence of marijuana in one's system may not constitute driving under the influence nor merit subsequent charges.

Up In Smoke

Bill Montgomery is at it again. This time the wayward Maricopa County attorney is going after Arizona's medical marijuana program in the court of law.

Puff Daddies

For the first time since 2002, people aged 35 to 44 are more likely to use marijuana regularly than Americans aged 12 to 17, the Center for Disease Control and Prevention discovered in October.

High Hopes for High Times

>The failure of Prop 205 may have been a sobering realization for some, but others still have high hopes for the future of marijuana in Arizona.

Roll Out

While many are still reeling from election night's results, some of that dizzying effect may owe itself to new marijuana laws in eight states. Only one state didn't pass its marijuana ballot measure, and we all already know who it is.

"It becomes a cycle, where unless we do something to break that cycle, these kids aren't going to have the same opportunities as their white counterparts."

Fact Checks!

We're two weeks out from the Nov. 8 election and the Arizonans for Responsible Drug Policy have been kicking their "No on 205" campaign into high gear with a slew of ads filled with misleading information and flat out lies to dissuade voters from passing a law that would be part of any real responsible drug policy.

Puff or Pass

Thousands of vehement voters received early ballots in the mail last week, marking the beginning of the Nov. 8 election, and perhaps the only question bigger than if the Trump brand train wreck is enough to turn Arizona blue is whether or not the state will turn green.

Dispensary Distribution

The Arizona Department of Health Services announced 31 new dispensary licenses last week, bringing the total number of Arizona dispensaries to 130 a month before Prop 205 appears on the November ballot.

Presidential Potential

With legalization efforts poppinge up around the country, it might seem like recreational marijuana is certainly on its way to being a national norm. However, current medical and recreational marijuana policies only exist by the grace of the federal government.

Prop 205 trudges towards the ballot amidst mounting concerns from critics.
