Group seeks to put hemp farm on Arizona ballot
Arizonans may get a chance to decide if they want to let farmers here grow an industrial -- and not psychoactive -- version of marijuana.

In essence, the measure would empower the state Department of Agriculture to license people to grow hemp. This essentially is marijuana but with a concentration of THC, the psychoactive element, that is no greater than three-tenths of one percent.

The organization, Hemp Our World, needs 150,642 valid signatures on petitions by July 7, 2016, to put it on the general election ballot that year.
