Arizona marijuana legalization campaign nearing signature goal, supporters say – Marijuana News

The Campaign to Regulate Marijuana Like Alcohol is a few thousand signatures short of gathering the 150,642 signatures needed to qualify for the ballot, spokesman Barrett Marson said Wednesday.

"Arizonans are clearly excited about this initiative," Marson added.
