Mary Rose Wilcox Is the Only CD7 Candidate Who Voices Opposition to Legalizing Marijuana

Comprehensive immigration reform dominated the candidate forum at South Mountain Community College last week -- and no wonder, considering that voters in Arizona's Seventh Congressional District are overwhelmingly Democratic Latinos.

And here's a shocker: All of the candidates at the forum -- a politician, a preacher, an attorney and a teacher -- support immigration reform that includes halting deportations and a path to citizenship.

But when it comes to legalizing pot in Arizona, only Mary Rose Wilcox, former Maricopa County supervisor, voices her opposition.
