Arizona Marijuana Legalization Initiative Information
Arizona failed to legalize cannabis for recreational use in the November 8th, 2016 election. The state, who legalized medical marijuana in 2010, quickly built an affinity for the plant and all the possibilities it brings with it.
In only 6 years, the state has opened over 122 medical marijuana dispensaries around the state, and they hope that number explodes if Arizona Marijuana Legalization occurs in the near future.
The Initiative proposed an 8% tax on marijuana if legalization does occur, and with the large number of people in the state who would be likely to purchase legal marijuana, that would have meant big tax dollars for the state.
The law would have allowed adults over the age of 21 to purchase marijuana from state licensed retail facilities, and the new laws could have gone into effect as soon as January 1st, 2017.
