Arizona Governor Stars at $10,000-A-Pop Anti-Pot Fundraiser

Arizona, state flag

Pot is leading in the polls in conservative Arizona, but that hasn’t stopped the state’s new governor, Doug Ducey, from doing what he can to stop the legalization initiative on the ballot in November.

The Phoenix New Times reports on an event happen tonight in swanky Paradise Valley, a Phoenix suburb:

Arizonans for Responsible Drug Policy, the anti-Prop 205 group run by Yavapai County Attorney Sheila Polk and talk-radio host Seth Leibsohn, is hosting the event. The group wants guests to pay $10,000 per person for the hourlong “discussion,” plus another $1,000 per person for the reception, which is scheduled to last until 7 p.m.

It’s the latest example of the fundraising muscle Ducey’s been bringing to ARDP, which has raised about $1.5 million in its effort to maintain felony prohibition for non-medical use of cannabis in Arizona.

Ducey, elected in 2014, was one of the founders of Cold Stone Creamery, dubbed by the Wall Street Journal as “among the 10 worst franchise brands in terms of Small Business Administration loan defaults.”

    If they pay that much to attend this crap gathering, the black market must be doing great for them and this little issue of ending prohibition is just an annoyance.

    Still waiting for Shelia Polk to present evidence of even just ONE case of an accident or injury were the impaired driver was impaired by cannabis alone?…and the crickets chirp on. When we passed Prop 203, our AZ medical cannabis law, we never envisioned the Dept of Health being able to use the education fund set aside to oppose legalization and promote propaganda. If you live in AZ and have been sleeping while dark money bills and land grab deals have been passed, it’s not to late to wake up and see that our government is working for their best interests, not ours.
