    In just over four months, voters could make marijuana legal for adults in Arizona. This single change would put an end to the nearly 10,000 annual arrests of adults for mere possession of marijuana. It would also raise millions for K-12 education – in a state that’s currently ranked 47 th in the nation in education!

    And that’s just the beginning. Take a look at how marijuana legalization has benefitted Colorado:

    In 2015 alone, the state generated more than $135 million in tax revenue from marijuana sales, more than $35 million of which is earmarked for local public schools.
    Colorado now boasts the fastest growing economy in the United States.
    Unemployment in Colorado is at a six-year low.
    Since legalization took effect, the state has seen declines in violent crime, traffic fatalities, and teen marijuana use.

    Please get involved and help us win.
    Go to to make the most generous donation you possibly can. (And if you’ve already given generously, thank you!)

    We hope to see you there.

    Thank you for your support. Together, we can build a better Arizona.”
