PHOENIX (AP) — A national marijuana-advocacy group's plan to campaign to put a legalization measure on Arizona's 2016 ballot is drawing a wary reaction from the state's budding industry of medical marijuana dispensaries.
Arizona is among states where the Washington-based Marijuana Policy Project plans legalization campaigns.
The state's voters in 2010 narrowly approved a medical marijuana law that now allows tens of thousands of cardholders to use marijuana for cancer or other specified medical conditions.
Bill Myer is co-owner of the Arizona Organix dispensary in Glendale. He tells the Arizona Republic (http://bit.ly/17OAuRX ) that the state should probably let its medical marijuana program fully develop before taking a step further.
Myer and some other dispensary operators also say they are concerned about how legalized recreational use could affect their financial investments.
