This measure did not or
will not appear on a ballot
An Arizona Medical Marijuana Act Repeal did not appear as a legislatively-referred state statute on the ballot in Arizona for the election on November 4, 2014. The proposed measure would have overturned a 2010 ballot measure allowing the use of medical marijuana. Rep. John Kavanagh filed the proposal with the Arizona State Legislature in January 2013.[1]


Representative Kavanagh filed the proposal in an effort to repeal Proposition 203, a measure approved by voters in 2010 that allows residents in the state with specific medical conditions to be treated with certain amounts of marijuana for personal use.

Kavanagh announced in early June 2013 that he was shelving his efforts to place the repeal on the 2014 ballot. According to reports, he felt that his proposal's failure in the legislature was political. He said, "The majority of the members oppose medical marijuana. But there are a lot of people who have expressed concern that that (ballot measure) would bring out people who would not vote Republican in the November election."[2]
