Phoenix New Times:  “In a sign that may bode well for legalization in Arizona next year, Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper sounds surprisingly upbeat about his state’s bold marijuana law in an interview with New Times‘ sister publication in Denver, Westword.  Opponents of planned ballot measures in Arizona for the November 2016 election often point to Colorado as a failed experiment that Arizona shouldn’t repeat. At an upcoming seminar by legalization opponents, for instance, six of seven speakers are from Colorado and will no doubt try to steer the audience toward the false idea that Arizona’s neighboring state is a disaster because of marijuana.  Hickenlooper . . . opposed the historic 2012 measure that legalized pot for adults 21 and older. But in the interview published on Wednesday inWestword, he says legalization hasn’t been so bad, after all.”
