PHOENIX (Nov. 9) – Today, the No on Prop 205 Campaign Chair Yavapai County Attorney Sheila Polk released the following statement:
“We are beyond pleased with the results. The defeat of Proposition 205 helps to secure a safe and prosperous future for Arizona for many years to come. The true winners of this victory are the children and grandchildren in our state. This initiative was bankrolled by marijuana special interests who sought to profit from its passage. Its defeat shows that Arizonans will not risk letting out-of-state interests buy the ballot box.
Our campaign is tremendously grateful to our dedicated volunteers who’ve spent their work nights and weekends helping to defeat this dangerous initiative, including countless coalitions of business leaders, education advocates, law enforcement officials, and parents who lent their time, talent and resources to this worthy cause.”
