07 Nov Prop 205
As election day nears it is important that we all know how to be voting on Tuesday. An important proposition is of course Prop 205. If prop 205 passes it will mean quite few things including the following as listed at www.regulatemarijuanainarizona.org:
- allows adults 21 years of age and older to possess up to one ounce of marijuana and consume marijuana in private.
- It allows adults to grow up to six marijuana plants in an enclosed, locked space within their residences and possess the marijuana produced by those plants in the location where it was grown.
- It establishes the Department of Marijuana Licenses and Control to oversee a tightly controlled system of licensed marijuana retail stores, licensed cultivation facilities, licensed product manufacturing facilities, and licensed testing facilities. The department will include a law enforcement unit that will be responsible for enforcing regulations, conducting compliance checks, and investigating violations.
- It allows a limited number of licensed marijuana retail stores to sell marijuana to adults 21 years of age and older. The number of retail stores will be capped at 10 percent of the number of liquor store licenses, which is currently fewer than 180.
