Arizona: New Legalization Campaign Arizonans For Mindful Regulation Wants…..

5 April 2016

Phoenix New Times reports

An alternative Arizona marijuana-legalization campaign made up of passionate cannabis users is aiming sky-high with its permissive proposal, but would voters really go for it?

Arizonans for Mindful Regulation, a grassroots organization that has a small army of volunteers but little money, is making a final push to make the ballot this November with its initiative that would allow up to 1,500 retail-shop licenses statewide to be issued by the end of next year. It . Colorado, by comparison, now has about 950 medical-marijuana and recreational marijuana retail outlets.

“AZFMR regulates marijuana a lot closer to alcohol than MPP but does not claim to do so.” — Dave Wisniewski

AZFMR’s leaders claim to have collected more than 100,000 signatures.

A much-better-funded effort backed by Arizona dispensaries and the national Marijuana Policy Project — the group that put the state’s medical-marijuana law on the ballot in 2010 — uses the more tried-and-true method of paying petition gatherers. That effort, the Campaign to Regulate Marijuana Like Alcohol in Arizona, is widely seen as having a good chance of landing on November’s ballot. Both initiatives need to turn in 150,000 valid voter signatures by July 7.
