Arizona medical marijuana initiative planned for 2010 ballot
Arizona: Marijuana activists are preparing a medical marijuana ballot initiative for the 2010 ballot in Arizona. Voters have been asked on several previous occasions to relax the state's drug laws, notably with Proposition 200, Proposition 300, Proposition 301, and Proposition 203.
According to The Arizona Republic, "The initiative would allow individuals with illnesses ranging from cancer to HIV/AIDS or glaucoma to seek a doctor's recommendation for medical marijuana... Eligible individuals would be able to purchase up to 2 1/2 ounces of the drug every 14 days from a series of non-profit outlets, known as dispensaries. Patients in rural areas of the state could cultivate a limited number of their own marijuana plants."
