PHOENIX (AP) — A state lawmaker says he wants to repeal Arizona's controversial medical marijuana law.
Rep. John Kavanagh, R-Fountain Hills, filed a bill Thursday that would refer the Arizona Medical Marijuana Act back to the ballot in November 2014.
The law allows people with certain medical conditions to legally grow, sell and use the drug. It was approved by voters in 2010 by a narrow margin of about 4,300 votes.
Kavanagh told The Arizona Republic (http://bit.ly/UjVGMe) that voters deserve the right to rethink whether the law should have passed in the first place.
He says he's also concerned that the state's medical marijuana law conflicts with federal drug laws.
House Concurrent Resolution 2003 would require the Legislature's approval, but not Gov. Jan Brewer's signature. The upcoming legislative session begins Jan. 14.
