Boas On Legalizing Marijuana

Phil Boas
Arizona Republic

The Show regularly checks in with Editorial Board of the Arizona Republic to talk about the big issues facing the state and the region — featured in the newspaper’s Viewpoints section.

Arizona voters came very close to approving a recreational marijuana measure in 2016, and all signs indicate a similar measure would have an even better chance of passage if one makes the 2020 ballot.

Today's edition of the Arizona Republic features a column calling on the legislature to craft its own proposal that would legalize marijuana, but potentially with more regulation.

Arizona Republic Editorial Director Phil Boas joined The Show for his weekly appearance to talk about it.

Steve Goldstein was a host at KJZZ from 1997 to 2022.
