The Campaign to Regulate Marijuana Like Alcohol announced a wide variety of political endorsements for Prop. 205, including several progressive, conservative, and libertarian individuals and organizations, at a news conference in front of the Arizona State Capitol on Wednesday.azdemlogo

The Arizona Democratic Party officially endorsed Prop. 205, and U.S. Rep. Raul Grijalva (AZ-3) became the second member of Arizona’s congressional delegation to throw his support behind the measure, joining Rep. Ruben Gallego (AZ-7). Prop. 205 also received endorsements from nearly a dozen state legislators, two members of the Tucson City Council, two members of the Tempe City Council, a member of the Maricopa City Council, as well as Las Adelitas Arizona, a Latina-focused civic engagement organization.

Prop. 205 also picked up several endorsements from the other side of the political spectrum, including the La Paz County Republican Committee, the Arizona Liberty Caucus, Arizona Libertarian Party Chairman Michael Kielsky, Cato Institute Adjunct Scholar Dr. Jeffrey Singer, and former Arizona Senate Majority Leader Dr. Tom Patterson, a past president of the Arizona Chapter of the American College of Emergency Physicians who served as chairman of the Goldwater Institute from 2000-2015.
