What Are They Smoking?

Highlighting inconsistencies in the anti-pot rhetoric of the right

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.

High Cost

Lawsuits against the state question the cost of MMJ patient and caregiver cards

Oregon Congressman: Legalize It!

"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: Let’s Make a Deal

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

Donor Trouble

Well, now it seems one such manufacturer of a fentanyl-based drug is concerned about recreational marijuana interfering with its future business plans.

Youth Pot

A new poll has illustrated what many of us already know: about half of Arizonans support marijuana legalization.

High society’s highest members

It seems the ARDP doesn't think Arizonans are capable of smoking responsibly. Well, I'd hate to break it to you guys, but about half of us smoke it already and we seem to be doing OK.

An MMJ Win

Many consider marijuana a "drug." However, it is no more a drug than cigarettes we smoke or alcohol we drink.

Legalization Props

Just as alcoholics make up the vast minority of alcohol users, those who pose the dangers raised by the ARDP are the vast minority of marijuana users.

Is Prop 205 Right for Arizona?

Prop 205, which would decriminalize the use of marijuana for adults over 21, is a complex proposal.
