Arizonans for Responsible Legalization filed its organization documents Friday. The group plans a signature-gathering effort to get a marijuana legalization measure on the 2016 ballot.
Arizonans for Responsible Legalization, said it would not offer details of its plan until it unveils the initiative language. “Arizonans for Responsible Legalization is committed to common sense regulation of the marijuana industry and ensuring the greatest benefit to taxpayers,” Gina Berman, an emergency room physician who will lead the effort, said a statement.
The initiative might be modeled after the marijuana program in Colorado, which was approved by voters and allows adults 21 and older to use and possess up to an ounce of pot. The marijuana is purchased at marijuana shops allowed to operate under the law.
