Proposition 203 was a proposition placed on the ballot in 2010 for the people, by the people of Arizona. It was a citizen initiative [voters wanted it - voters approved it] to begin a state approved medical marijuana program organized and powered by the Arizona Health Department Services [see www.AZDHS.gov for more info]. In November of 2010, registered Arizona voters passed the Arizona Medical Marijuana Act; commonly known as Proposition 203. As a Proposition, [marijuana doctors. These certifications can be used with the state Health Department to receive a Medical Marijuana License. The state charges $150 per license per year.] the people proposed a plan to create a system where authorized, state licensed patients were allowed to possess medicinal cannabis. It was seen as controversial and a sincere plot to decriminalize the use of marijuana in Arizona. Through Prop 203, qualified individuals that have a “state approved” medical condition can receive certifications from
Proposition 203 is also referred to as the “CI” or “Citizen Initiative.” The proposition was approved by a majority vote in Arizona after a close vote count revealed that marijuana use is what the people want. The state accepted the proposition and Governor Jan Brewer placed her signature on the ballot December 14th, 2010 and it became a Law. Unfortunately, Gov. Jan Brewer has publicly feuded with this law and has created many roadblocks for registered tax paying Arizona voters, even after the people voted by a majority. Gov. Brewer needs to learn the word ‘commitment.’ You see, nobody ever informed Governor Brewer that when you presumably sign your name to documents – especially things marked “Sign Here to Enable State Law” – you should FOLLOW THROUGH with your “commitment.” There’s that word again. Commitment. In case Gov. Brewer is actually reading this, here is a link on commitment. Enjoy.
The citizen initiative (Proposition 203) called on the Arizona Department of Health Services to create a medical marijuana program within 120 days from the official election results. William Humble is the head of the Arizona Health Department and he is also appointed to this position. William Humble has a salary of at least $103,000 and as much as $185,000. How do I know this?

As I was saying, William Humble is in charge of the medical marijuana act and he was appointed to this position and receives a six figure salary courtesy of tax payers in Arizona. No, he is not appointed by the people. He was appointed by Governor Jan Brewer. William Humble publicly stated his distaste for the medical marijuana program before voters even voted. William Humble was against the medical marijuana act from the word go. To date [11/8/2012] Arizona still DOES NOT HAVE ONE SINGLE DISPENSARY TO ACCESS MEDICAL MARIJUANA. Mr. Humble has filed lawsuits against medical marijuana activists and even against approved card members. William Humble is bad for Arizona. William Humble must go. Gov. Jan Brewer is bad for Arizona. Gov. Jan Brewer must go. Together, these two couldn’t manage a Jamba Juice.
Qualifying patients can start applying for identification cards on April 14, 2011, and William Humble suspended the dispensary and dispensary agent portions on May 27, 2011. Apparently, we have a Director that is just gonna write our laws for us I guess. That means we don’t need to vote anymore. [insert sarcasm]
For now, William Humble continues to operate under Gov. Jan Brewer and is the Director of HS. It seems these two conspirators missed the “political ethics” chapter in college. They never understood the theory of democracy. You work for the people. Don’t ever forget that. You work for me bitches…
