Marijuana Opponents Are Being Dishonest

September 15, 2016

The small group of spokespersons on the No side of the debate over Prop 205, the ballot measure to legalize recreational marijuana, are being dishonest. They pick out provisions of the measure that would likely irritate most voters, such as the creation of a large regulatory agency or the grant of monopoly business privileges to marijuana dispensary owners. This makes it appear that they agree with the majority of Arizona voters on the big issue, that is, in the belief that marijuana is less harmful than alcohol and that the government should not be able to stop adults from responsibly using it. Their argument is disingenuous. For proof, just ask the opponents what changes would be required in the ballot measure for them to support it. Their answer is none. These opponents do not favor any law that would allow responsible adult use of marijuana. They are simply out of touch with the mainstream of Arizona voters but do not want to admit it.
