Marijuana or Gay Marriage: Which Is More Likely to Be Legalized in Arizona?
Gay marriage and legal marijuana possession are two things that probably haven't stood a chance in hell against Arizona voters over the last few years, but two groups are thinking now's the time for their issues.
Last week, a group calling itself "Safer Arizona" filed its paperwork for a marijuana-legalizing amendment to the Arizona Constitution, and now, there's a group called "Equal Marriage Arizona" that wants marriage to be defined as a union of two people.
A recent poll of both issues found that a majority of Arizonans found both. The Behavior Research Center poll from May found that 56 percent of Arizonans supported legalizing the possession of small amounts of marijuana, and 55 percent support legalizing same-sex marriage.
Still, both groups have a long way to go -- they need to get 259,213 signatures by July 2014 to get on the ballot, and then they'll need majority support at the polls.
Which one do you think is most likely to be legalized come November 2014?
