Several marijuana-related measures could be on the 2016 ballot.
The latest proposal is an Arizona initiative to waive state application fees for medical marijuana patient cards.
Applicants currently must pay $150 — or $75 if they are on food stamps — to apply for a medical marijuana card, under a 2010 law narrowly approved by state voters.
Organizers need to collect more than 150,600 valid voter signatures by next July to get this onto the November ballot. A group called the Arizona Marijuana Patient Society is proposing the measure.
There are also efforts to legalize marijuana for recreational use and allow for large-scale hemp production.
