"Civility in Action": A public dialogue on Prop 205

Marijuana Legalization Initiative

Prop. 205, if passed by voters on Nov. 8th, would allow adults 21 years of age and older to possess and to privately consume and grow limited amounts of marijuana, and would establish a 15% tax on retail marijuana sales, from which the revenue will be allocated to public health and education. In August 2016, at the first Arizona Citizens’ Initiative Review, an independent panel of randomly selected 22 voters produced a Citizen Statement on Prop. 205 and noted its main pros and cons. As Arizonans get ready to go to vote on this measure, we invite you to a community learning and dialogue session to better understand its pros and cons. All viewpoints are welcome!
