The first medical marijuana laws were passed in 1996 in Arizona. It was passed by voters and rejected by the government. Arizona voters passed the Arizona Medical Marijuana Act in 2010, finally legalizing medical marijuana. Since then, they have been close to making it recreational every ballot year.
This year (2020), The new Proposition 207 would allow adults 21 years and older to possess, consume or transfer up to 1 ounce of cannabis and create a regulatory system for the products' cultivation and sale. 
According to estimates from industry publication Marijuana Business Daily, recreational sales in Arizona could total $700 million to $760 million by 2024.
