It looks like the people of Arizona are beginning to follow in Colorado’s footsteps. A recent poll of Arizona residents showed that a slight majority is in favor for legalizing marijuana for recreational use: 51% of people favor legalizing, 41% of people are against it, and 8% are unsure. Colorado and Washington have recently passed laws allowing the recreational use of the drug, and many states, including Arizona, are watching to see how these new laws plays out. Arizona passed the legalization of medical marijuana a few years ago, but so far, using marijuana for non-medical purposes is still illegal and still carries hefty penalties.
Because medical marijuana is legal, the drug may be easier for some people to get a hold of. Arizona courts still see marijuana as an illegal substance and does not go easier on offenders just because medical marijuana is allowed.
