State Capitol protest calls for legalization of marijuana
Published on 1/14/15
Arizona protesters gathered infront of the Arizona state capital on Monday morning to push for the reform of marijuana laws. Currently in the state, possession is a fine of $750 and up to 4 years in prison and the sale of marijuana could land you about 12 and a half years in prison. The pro-marijuana group, Safer Arizona, plans to protest every year on the first day of the Legislative session until laws are reformed.
"What we're trying to do is let our legislators know that we're tired of prohibition," Clark said. "We want them to reform the cannabis laws and stop arresting nonviolent citizens."
