Who are we?
|RAD - Relegalize All Drugs
How do you contact us?
What do we want to do?
We want to end the "War on Drugs".
We are circulating petitions in Arizona to re-legalize marijuana and to re-legalize all drugs.
Why do we want to do it?
If drug abuse or marijuana abuse is a problem it should be a medical problem, not a criminal problem.
It is morally wrong to send people to prison for the victimless crime of drug use or abuse.
Drugs don't cause crime. The laws making drugs illegal cause crime.
The War on Drugs is a racist war which targets people of color.
Check out this link for a much longer list of all the reasons we want to re-legalize not only marijuana, but re-legalize ALL drugs.

The full text for our initiative to re-legalize all drugs is here.
How many signatures do we need?
To get each initiative on the ballot we need 225,963 valid signatures.
Since all initiatives get a lot of invalid signatures we will probably need at least 10% more then that or about 250,000 signatures.

If you want to circulate our RAD petitions to re-legalize marijuana or to re-legalize all drugs in Arizona the preferred way to get the petitions is to print them off of the web on your printer.
RAD is a grassroots effort to re-legalize all drugs and we don't have a lot of money so we prefer that you print the petitions to help our tiny budget.

Re-legalizing ALL DrugsAs far as initiatives to re-legalize ALL drugs we suspect RAD will be the only group circulating petitions to re-legalize ALL drugs.
Re-legalizing MarijuanaIn this election cycle we think there will be three groups circulating petitions to re-legalize marijuana. They will be:
Comparing the 3 initiatives to re-legalize marijuana
RAD Relegalize All DrugsRAD's initiatives calls for complete and total re-legalization marijuana.
RAD's initiatives forbids the government from taxing or regulating marijuana.
RAD's initiative pardons and clears the record of anyone arrested for a victimless marijuana crime.
RAD thinks our elected officials have screwed up things royal with their insane "War on Drugs" and RAD isn't going to let them do it again.
RAD's initiative is 11 lines long or about or half a page.
Here is the RAD initiative.
Safer ArizonaSafer Arizona seems to be taking a real conservative approach to this issue. Probably because they feel the voters will not pass a liberal initiative like RAD's.
Safer Arizona seems to want to tax and regulate marijuana like liquor.
Last time we checked the Safer Arizona initiative was 7 pages compared to the 11 lines or half page in the RAD initiative.
Here is a draft from Safer Arizona.
MPP - Marijuana Policy ProjectWe suspect that some really smart business men have taken over MPP or Marijuana Policy Project and are using it to create an initiate that gives them a govenrment monopoly on growing and selling marijuana. So they can make millions and probably billions off of marijuana users.
MPP's initiative if it's like Arizona's Medical Marijuana act which was Prop 203 will severely limit the number of businesses that can grow or sell marijuana.
Prop 203 only allows 127 medical marijuana dispensaries in the state of Arizona.
We suspect the reason behind that is to allow the people financing the MPP initiative to make lots of money once it's passed.
The MPP initiative will also create a huge government bureaucracy to regulated and control recreational marijuana.
The MPP initiative will also allow the govenrment to heavily tax marijuana.
The MPP initiative gives allows government bureaucrats to micro-manage the marijuana market. As long as the regulations are reasonable.
Of course what's reasonable to a government bureaucrats is frequently unreasonable to the man on the street.
And the only way to contest unreasonable regulations is thru long expensive lawsuits which the dispensaries can afford, but the man on the street can't afford.
MPP had it's hand in creating Arizona's Medical Marijuana Act or Prop 203, and we think MPP was behind the initiatives in both Washington and Colorado which both legalized recreation marijuana.
Currently medical marijuana sells for $300+ and ounce in Arizona. Recreational marijuana also sells for $300+ an ounce in both Washington and Colorado. Black market marijuana sells for less then a third of that, or under $100 an ounce.
We suspect that if the MPP initiative is passed that recreational marijuana will sell for $300+ an ounce in Arizona also. And that black market marijuana will continue to sell for under $100 an ounce.
And if marijuana sells for $300+ and ounce in Arizona that means the black market will continue to exist once marijuana is legalized. And all the crime that is associated with black market marijuana will continue to exists.
RAD thinks the MPP initiative is horrible and it will just cause the dispensaries to take part of the marijuana market away from the cartels. Of course the cartels will continue to exist and sell black market marijuana at prices lower then the dispensaries.
Last time we checked the MPP initiative was 19 pages long compared to the 11 lines or half page in the RAD initiative.
Here is a draft of the first proposed MPP initiative.
