Marijuana Legalization Campaign Trying to Get Issue on Arizona Ballots in 2014

Arizona may become the next state where the voters can decide to legalize the personal use of marijuana.

On Wednesday, a group calling itself "Safer Arizona" filed its paperwork for the marijuana-legalizing amendment to the Arizona Constitution with the Secretary of State's office. The group will need 259,213 signatures by July 2014 to get on the ballot.
