Arizona to Give Marijuana Legalization Another Try
Marijuana legalization came within 70,000 votes in Arizona of having a perfect record on Election Day.

One citizen-led effort is already afoot—and if Safer Arizona has its way, the state will have some of the most permissive marijuana laws in the country.
