Great news from the Maricopa County Superior Court late yesterday. Judge James Smith ruled that the Smart and Safe Arizona Act, the initiative to legalize adult-use cannabis in Arizona, can stay on the ballot. Judge Smith wrote a 15-page ruling that renounced the assertions by Lisa James and Arizonans for Responsible Drug Policy that the 100-word summary did not fully represent the principle provisions of the initiative.
This is a big step toward legalization even though Arizonans for Responsible Drug Policy can appeal the superior court ruling. We will continue to monitor the situation and keep you up to date as we move in the direction of legalization.
