Thirteen lawmakers have signed on to House Bill 2558, a recently-filed proposal which would legalize cannabis in Arizona similar to how Amendment 64 legalized cannabis in Colorado.

Under the proposed law, adults 21 and older would be legally authorized to possess up to an ounce of cannabis, as well as a few cannabis plants. State-licensed retail outlets would be established to distribute cannabis.

Representative Ruben Gallego, an Iraq war veteran who is the primary sponsor of the legislation, says it will ”regulate and tax marijuana in a manner similar to alcohol.”

In addition to House Bill 2558, thirteen lawmakers have also filed House Bill 2474, which would decriminalize, rather than legalize, the possession of up to an ounce of cannabis; the penalty would be dropped from a potential felony, to a simply ticket.

Those in Arizona who support either proposal should contact their district’s lawmakers – which they can look up by clicking here - and ask for their support.

  1. we shall see…it’s still an uphill climb in this battle. so many naysayers still….I can hope to dream right?

  2. I hope it doesn’t take 20 years for florida to make it legal for recreational use. They need to get with the program and follow Colorados lead. It seems to be working good for them and they are making a shit load of tax revenue,

  3. About damn time America is moving forward its up for vote in Cali this year two :) 20 years after passing the medical marijuana laws
