Arizona Lawmaker Making Plans to Legalize Marijuana


Marijuana has been a hot topic since President Obama won the election. Arizona lawmaker has decided to make plans for a proposal. What kind of proposal? One to legalize the recreational use of marijuana. When is this happening? Well he’s making plans to introduce a proposal next year. This is before a similar proposal could get decided by voters which would be in 2016.


The Arizona Capitol Times Report:

Republican Rep. Ethan Orr of Tucson plans to make the case to fellow conservatives that a voter-approved measure is nearly impossible to change once it is approved and not the way to set up a complicated regulation and taxation system for the drug.

Legalizing Marijuana has been a heated subject for a long time. People believe legalizing marijuana is the “beginning” of the end. I think that’s crazy talk. Let’s legalize it and gay marriage and move on. Everyone has a right to live the way they want to, as long as it’s not hurting anyone else with however you choose to live your life. Advocates for legalizing marijuana for recreational use are wanting to put their proposal on the Arizona ballot in 2016. Looks like they might not have to if this new bill gets passed.

Voters have been very loud with their opinions, whether you are for it or against it it’s been very clear that the majority of voters have approved the use of marijuana to treat chronic pain, cancer, as well as other medical conditions. It’s been ok for medical use, so why not recreational use?

However, Republican Represent-or Bob Thorpe. Bob is for Flagstaff area and he is pretty concerned about what he has been hearing about Colorado’s legalization experiment.
