Are parts of the RAD initiative in conflict with the US Constitution?


Is the "No Extraditions" in conflict with the US Constitution

Item 8, which is on "extraditions" definitely seems to conflict with the US Constitution on extraditions which is
Article IV, Section 2, Clause 2
which provides for the extradition of a criminal back to the state where he or she has committed a crime.

And for that reason I plan to delete it from the initiative.


8. The government shall not extradite a person to another state or country if the person could be charged with marijuana crimes which would be legal in Arizona.


Does the RAD initiative violate the Ex Post Facto law?

I originally posted this here.

I need to fix that and add a blurb about how I was kicked out of Safer Arizona for complaining that Tom Dean was turning the Safer Arizona initiative into a mini version of the MPP or Marijuana Policy Project's evil Prop 2005.

Somebody seems to think this blurb in the RAD initiative which I believe is also in the Safer Arizona initiative may violate the ex post facto laws in the US Constitution.

Article I, Section 10, Clause 1, of the U.S. Constitution covers ex post facto laws.

It says:

No State shall enter into any Treaty, Alliance, or Confederation; grant Letters of Marque and Reprisal; coin Money; emit Bills of Credit; make any Thing but gold and silver Coin a Tender in Payment of Debts; pass any Bill of Attainder, ex post facto Law, or Law impairing the Obligation of Contracts, or grant any Title of Nobility.

All the reading I have done on it seem to say that ex post facto laws are only unconstitutional when they increase the penalties for a crime. Not when the give a pardon. Any comments on this?

While the RAD initiative gives automatic pardons, Tom Dean modified the Safer Arizona initiative so you have to request a pardon.

6. Any person convicted of any marijuana offense in the past shall automatically have their criminal record cleared for those charges and automatically receive a full pardon for those charges.


Does Item 3 conflict with US Constitution?

The same person who raised the first question also thought this might be unconstitutional. But personally I think this is 100% solid and constitutional.


3. The government shall NOT assist any other government entities, such as Federal, foreign, world, Native American or state governments in enforcing any laws against marijuana.
