The group that was behind Arizona's medical-marijuana law plans to push a marijuana-legalization initiative in Arizona in 2016.

The marijuana-legalization only seems to be moving forward. Although there are major pot foes here in Arizona, local polls seem to show support for the idea of legalization, and Senator John McCain said he respects the will of the people in that regard.

Here's our question this morning: When do you think marijuana will be legalized with a Colorado-style law in Arizona?
