Marijuana Activists in California, Arizona Play Catch-Up to Colorado


As we all know, Colorado is the standard-setter when it comes to limited legal recreational marijuana sales.

But plenty of other states are trying to catch up — and Westword's Voice Media Group sister papers are documenting the process.

The L.A. Weekly has an interview about legalization in California with pot lawyer Bruce Margolin.

And a new Phoenix New Times feature quizzes pot activists who want legalization approved on their terms.
