Tucson’s ABC News affiliate reports:
The Arizona Secretary of State’s office certified signatures for the marijuana legalization ballot measure. Secretary Katie Hobbs announced it will now be placed on the general election ballot in November as Prop 207.
The initiative would legalize the possession and use of recreational marijuana for adults ages 21 years or older and allow those to grow no more than six marijuana plants for personal use in their home.
Arizona Department of Health and Human Services would be responsible for adopting rules to regulate marijuana use, including licensing of retail stores, cultivation facilities, and production facilities.
