Arizona Voters to Decide Medical Marijuana Initiative

Posted By on Wed, Jun 2, 2010 at 9:11 AM

A medical marijuana initiative has made the 2010 ballot.

Evan Wyloge of the Arizona Capitol Times has the details here:

Supporters of the initiative said some Arizonans are suffering from medical conditions that are most effectively treated with marijuana, voters have shown they support medical marijuana, and the initiative heading to the ballot avoids mistakes made by some states with similar laws.

“This would provide relief for Arizona’s most vulnerable and ill residents,” said Andrew Myers, a spokesman for the medical marijuana campaign.

The initiative’s opponents, however, said legalizing medical marijuana would increase the use of illegal drugs and that smoking marijuana is no substitute for medicine.
