Marijuana leaves.

Following in the footsteps of Colorado, Arizona voters may have the chance to approve a ballot initiative in the fall that would legalize marijuana use here.

A number of educators, including a group of recent state schools superintendents, are strongly opposed. Among the former superintendents is Lisa Graham Keegan.

The initiative’s supporters dispute the educator's arguments. JP Holyoak is chairman of the Campaign to Regulate Marijuana Like Alcohol and spoke about the campaign.
