Lawsuit Filed to Stop Legalization Of Cannabis In AZ

•, azcn

"It was disheartening to see the Arizona legislature not even attempt to craft an agreeable bill this year (or any other year).   The citizens of Arizona were left no choice but to pursue public initiative – the single greatest vehicle of direct democracy permitted by the constitution in the majority of states.  Over 420,000 Arizonans signed the ballot petition.    This 17-page lawsuit by 7 fellow citizens is just another attempt to ignore the will of the voters.  Picayune arguments, like the petition's 100-word summary, fails to properly inform the citizenry about all the material aspects of the (also 17-page) initiative, should not prevail.    But the lawsuit was filed and now a few citizens will decide for all 7.2 million Arizonans what they may and may not vote upon, even by the public initiative.
