Majority of Arizonans Support Recreational

Recently, a new poll survey found that roughly 65% of Arizonans would vote for the Smart and Safe Arizona Act if it were to make it on the ballot this year in November. The initiative plans to legalize marijuana use and possession for adults 21 years or older in Arizona. The poll,
administrated by HighGround, resulted in 25% of opposing the ballot measure and 9% are undecided, with the rest approving the measure, according to AZ Mirror.

The Smart and Safe Arizona ballot initiative claimed that it had already collected more than 300,000 signatures, which is well over the 237,645 required signatures before the COVID-19 lockdown.

The results showed that voters who are 50 years or older are likely to make up more than half of the Arizona electorate in this upcoming November, according to HighGround. Voters are more likely to support the Smart and Safe Arizona initiative this year than past years. In 2016, Proposition 205, which was an attempt to legalize recreational marijuana in Arizona, failed 48% to 52%. The initiative failed mostly due to the pro-marijuana Arizonans fighting on multiple initiatives instead of settling on one initiative – Prop 205. It’s believe that if Arizonans had
compromised on one initiative, Prop 205 would have passed then.

Majority of voters ages 50 through 64 support the proposal – 63%. In addition, voters 65 and older have shown 55% of support. The only subset that did not seem to have the majority support was those who described themselves as ‘very conservative’. Among that particular group, the issue was then split evenly with 47.6% in favor and 47.6% opposed.
