Published sometime in the last few days here’s their statement in full as published on their website at http://legalizemarijuanainarizona.org/news/azfmr-campaign-to-legalize-marijuana-put-on-hold-2018/
Based on the number of Petitions that we now bring in each week, our Campaign leadership has concluded that we must put the AZFMR Campaign to Legalize Marijuana on hold until 2018. However, we will continue to accept any Petitions from our volunteers as a formality.
Our entire Campaign would like to sincerely say THANK YOU to our 200+ Volunteers and the 100+ Arizona Businesses who have helped us collect all of these signatures for our 2016 Campaign!
We would also like to give another big THANK YOU to each and every person and business who contributed financially to our Campaign to Legalize Marijuana! Despite not making the 2016 ballot, we truly believe that this 2016 Campaign was a SUCCESS!
Day 1 of the new AZFMR 2018 Campaign to Legalize Marijuana starts on November 9th, 2016! Our army of volunteers and supporting businesses will be ready!
In the meantime, we’re going to launch a NEW Campaign to encourage all Arizonans to Vote NO on the MPP 2016 Initiative and Vote YES on our AZFMR 2018 Marijuana Legalization Initiative instead.
(If you previously made a financial contribution to our “Campaign to Legalize Marijuana”, that money stays with THAT Campaign. If you want to make a financial contribution to the Vote NO Campaign, you will need to make a new contribution.)
In addition to doing the Vote NO Campaign, we’ll also be working to persuade the Arizona Legislature to pass our Marijuana Decriminalization bill prior to the vote in November 2016.
Day 1 of the new AZFMR 2018 Campaign starts on November 9th, 2016. Starting on October 1st, 2016, we’ll be allowing people to suggest or recommend any changes that should be made to our AZFMR 2018 Marijuana Legalization Initiative..
We only get 1 chance to pass a Marijuana Legalization bill in Arizona, so we MUST do it right the first time!
Our Campaign leadership is very excited to continue working with all of our AZFMR supporters as we transition into the Vote NO Campaign and then quickly transition back into the AZFMR Marijuana Legalization Campaign in a few short months!
On behalf of all Arizonans, Thank You all so much for standing up for what’s right!
