News Room Administrators Staff

Phoenix, AZ, United States (NewsBahn) – Safer Arizona, a cannabis-reform political-action committee, reportedly won’t move to collect more signatures for a 2014 ballot initiative to legalize marijuana.

An official of the group indicated it collected just a third of the needed 250,000 signatures needed to get on the ballot.

“It was around a third of what we were after,” Mikel Weisser, executive director for Safer Arizona, told the Arizona Republic. “It’s not going to be a number that we are rallying behind, it’s a benchmark to improve from.”

Weisser said Safer Arizona has a strong grass roots organization in place to push for legalization in 2016.

“One of the things we have is tens of thousands of people who have already signed for us, and hundreds of people who have already volunteered for us and now we will be able to build out of that a much mightier ballot initiative,” Weisser said.
