Billboard mocks anti-marijuana fear tactics

Be unafraid. Be very, very unafraid.

The only reason Arizona residents would vote against a ballot proposal legalizing marijuana in a way that treats pot like alcohol --  is fear.

That’s it. That’s the only argument against it:


We know already that fear tactics will be the primary strategy used by those opposed to legalization.

Recreational marijuana may fund public education

Marijuana bundle drops from sky and slams into Arizona family's carport

  • Maya Donnelly heard a crash at night but thought it was thunder

24-Pound Bundle Of Marijuana Crashes Through Arizona Family's Roof, Destroys Doghouse

The morning of September 8 started with a bang — literally — for an Arizona family living in Nogales, a border town along the U.S.-Mexico border, according to the Nogales International. In the wee hours of the morning, Bill and Maya Donnelly were startled awake by a loud crashing sound. Thinking it was a storm, the family went back to sleep. But when they investigated later in the morning, what they found shocked them: a 24-pound bundle of marijuana — likely dropped from a passing plane — had crashed through the roof of the family’s garage and destroyed the family dog’s, Hulk’s, doghouse.


Which States Will Vote On Marijuana Legalization In 2016?

The 2016 Election is not that far away, especially for campaigns. Signature deadlines vary across the country, but they will be up sooner than later. Campaigns are working very hard to get marijuana legalization on the ballot in many states, some having better chances than others of making it on the ballot. I was hopeful that over a dozen states would make the ballot in 2016, and maybe there will be some significant changes that help some states catch up. But for now, below are the states that I feel will make the ballot, and in the case of Nevada, already have made the ballot:



Arizona: Marijuana ballot initiative appears inevitable

TUCSON – Supporters and opponents of marijuana legalization believe Arizona voters will decide the issue in November 2016.

The Campaign to Regulate Marijuana Like Alcohol in Arizona announced it has gathered 75,000 signatures for a ballot initiative. It needs about 150,000. The campaign wants to gather 230,000 in anticipation of invalid signatures.

Seth Leibsohn is the chairman of Arizonans for Responsible Drug Policy, which opposes legalization.

“They have paid almost a million dollars to a professional firm to collect signatures.” He said. “You could collect signatures for anything at that price. So I've never doubted that they could get on the ballot.”


Weekly US Cannabis Spot Price Index

U.S. Cannabis Benchmark Spot Index down 9% to $1,948 as harvest begins. The national price decreased by $185 per pound week-on-week, after reaching $2,133 last week, in what currently appears to have been the seasonal peak.

The fall harvest season has begun. Depending on local climate and the strains being grown, outdoor growers will generally harvest from mid-September to mid-November. Kushes and other indica-dominant strains are ready for harvest earlier, while sativa-dominant varieties require more time to mature if they are to be considered high-quality and exhibit fully the characteristics desired by consumers.


Arizona Marijuana Legalization Campaign's Picking Up Signatures Fast

A campaign to legalize marijuana for adults 21 and older in Arizona has picked up 75,000 signatures already, an achievement that makes the proposal ever more likely to appear on the state's 2016 ballot.

J.P. Holyoak, chair of the Campaign to Regulate Marijuana Like Alcohol, says today that his group is about one-third of the way toward its goal to turn in 230,000 signatures before the July 2016 deadline. More than 150,000 signatures are needed to qualify for the ballot, but ballot-measure campaigns always shoot for a much higher number knowing that many will be thrown out for various reasons.
