Arizona veterans claim victory for marijuana research funding effort


Marc Victor, chairman of the Arizona Veterans Assistance Committee, which was leading a recall of state Sen. Kimberly Yee, says he is filing papers with the secretary of state to terminate the recall after negotiating a compromise with Yee and her attorney.

Victor said of the compromise, " is a clear victory for our side. Senator Yee will now support MMJ research. More importantly, she has moved from an enemy of medical marijuana to at least a moderate supporter. Additionally, she has agreed to meet with Andrew Myers, who did a great job on this project, and others in the MMJ community to discuss the issues going forward including legislation for next term. I think this recall made a big statement, got lots of attention, and served notice that the MMJ community can no longer be ignored. In that regard, it was a huge victory for the big picture which is total legalization of marijuana. A free society requires nothing less."
