Judge rejects lawsuit: Marijuana measure will be on Arizona ballot
Published on Aug 19, 2016
Last month, Proposition 205 officially qualified for the election ballot, giving Arizonans the ability to vote for recreational legalization this November. Marijuana opponents hoped to waste time and money from the legalization campaign, but after the judge threw out the lawsuit a The Campaign to Regulate Marijuana Like Alcohol chairman says he will be asking to recover the cost of the lawsuit. The plantiffs claimed that the 100-word summary of the bill was not specific enough for voters to understand, but with complete access to Proposition 205's text online, anyone can see what they're voting for, like any other bill. If voters pass Proposition 205, adults over 21 will be able to possess up to 1 ounce of marijuana and grow up to 6 plants in their home.
"This frivolous lawsuit was meant to waste the campaign's resources," Holyoak said. "After the case is concluded we will be asking the court to recover our costs from these litigious people. We've said from the beginning this was a frivolous lawsuit and Judge Gentry dismissed each and every frivolous claim. It is time to let the voters decide."
