Is Arizona ever going to legalize for Adult Use?2020-04-20T17:25:32-07:00

That COULD happen this year if Arizona voters approve Smart and Safe Arizona’s 2020 legalization campaign. I can promise you we’re doing our damnedest. The Smart and Safe Arizona campaign has already gathered 320,000 signatures, apx 80,000 more than necessary. The deadline is June 30th. Arizona NORML works with the campaign to coordinate volunteer efforts and has worked with activists around the state.

Here is a link to the initiative language. This is our summary of the major points. Volunteers are needed for traditional canvassing/phone banking, signage, event organizing and social media.

I was pulled over by a police officer over a year ago, now I’m being charged and need help!?2020-04-20T17:27:03-07:00

As ridiculously punitive and unlikely as that may sound, it is not uncommon for Arizona law enforcement to take as much as six months to follow through on an arrest. Until Arizona legalizes cannabis, ALL cannabis charges begin as class 6 felonies and any convictions can result in jail time, fines, probation and potential revocation of an AZDHS medical card. AZ-NORML recommends vigorously challenging any legal charges to prevent them from permanently damaging your record.

The most important piece of advice is to remain calm and contact AZ-NORML asap. Contact our HOTLINE 928-234-5633.

Our office can provide critical non-legal advice to help you prepare your case. More importantly, we work extensively with the Arizona Cannabis Bar Association to refer cannabis lawyers around the state for a variety of criminal and civil cannabis law issues, including DCS challenges and dependency court. Our nationally renowned legal counsel, Tom Dean, or ACABA vice president Sonia Martinez, can frequently provide an initial phone consult free of charge to people referred by NORML.
