all of this, asked the u.s. attorney's office to investigate arpaio and his top aides to decide if arpaio's actions rise to a criminal level. again, this ruling was handed down just minutes ago. we are continuing to read through it and we'll bring you much more tonight on fox 10 news at 9:00 and 10:00. there's more legal news this afternoon as arizona voters, it appears they will decide whether to legalize marijuana for recreational use in november. after a maricopa county judge threw out a lawsuit that was seeking to the ballot. but supporters of prop 205, they are pleased with the ruling but opponents are vowing to challenge it one more time at the arizona state supreme court. if voters were to approve regulation and taxation of marijuana, arizonans 21 and older would be allowed to possess an ounce of weed and grow up to six plants for personal use. the drug would be taxed at 15%.
$55 million would then be funneled through tax dollars into education. those against legalizing weed, they are worried that children would get their hands on the drug and it could cause problems in society. they're also concerned about a potential increase in substance abuse, stoned drivers, less productivity in the workplace. >> this is not a surprise. we knew going into this that this lawsuit was frivolous in every single regard. it was ultimately a waste of the court's time and taxpayer dollars, and the courts ruled against the prohibitionists. there's a lot that can happen betwen new and november, so certainly don't count your chickens before they hatch. i would ask you to ask me that question on november 9th, but as things stand today, i would be thrilled if the vote were to be held tomorrow. >> there's a number of reasons why voters should reject this measure. it's a huge danger to children.
seen a 72% increase in consumption and accidental exposure by children, we are talking three, four, and five-year-olds, and what colorado did is they logically went back and said we are going to outlaw gummy bears, marijuana gummy beer -- gummy bears. >> releasing a statement saying that marijuana laced candy times more potent than a joint smoked at woodstock. and this image, can you tell which gummy bears contain marijuana? can your child? vote no on prop 205. joining me now in studio, we have talked about this, we talked about it on news maker sunday. what's the path forward now for the arizona supreme court? >> we have a set of procedural
they deal with disputes involving elections and ballot measures and they are organized in a way that allows us to get a final decision in a dispute like this on a very expedited basis, not just before voting day but before in this instance, perhaps, a ballot even needs to be printed for voters. >> so they are under the gun they have got to get it done. >> that's right. >> do they hear oral arguments in this, or does this come in as briefs filed by the >> although the court can, it doesn't have to. the challengers in this case, the losers, need to file an appeal of judge gentry's ruling in ten days, which is 20 days faster than a traditional appeal, and once that is filed there will be a conference scheduled very quickly, briefs will be shorter than in a typical appeal.
are designed so that can we can obtain a final decision on a faster basis. >> the state supreme court cannot say no, can't look at it and say we are not going to take this up. >> no, this isn't discretionary because it is an appeal. the parties in this case, either one of them have the right to appeal, and that's presumably what they will exercise if they decide to do that. >> do you think the override is for the voters to have their say and the court will not interfere? >> i think that's the conventional wisdom, the idea is that unless there is something really procedurally wrong in what happened to the run up to the signatures, then you really want the voters to decide the will of the issue. keep in mind the challengers have one more bite at the apple in the sense that if the ballot passes, it can be challenged one more time. >> it can still be challenged even after it passes. >> after the fact, yeah.
the breaking news with joe arpaio. you have been a lawyer for more than 30 years. how much jeopardy is joe arpaio in tonight with a decision from judge snow to go forward and refer it to the feds? >> well, it certainly creates a cloud. i mean he hasn't been indicted yet. >> right. >> but anytime a sitting federal judge suggests to the attorney general's office that someone like a sheriff in a state be investigated for potential criminal activity, that's serious no matter how you look at it. >> and this is the obama justice department. i mean, iou may be predisposed to wanting to perhaps get at joe arpaio. >> well, i don't know about that, but you do have to take into account his track record of profiling, which was a big element of the whole dispute with judge snow and the contempt proceedings and we know what the obama administration's position is on profiling, so -- >> casual friday. we are going to put you in a suit and you are going to be part of the staff now because we

now how's that thing supposed to convince anyone to buy a car? it's just full of hot air and doesn't say much. like the labels you see on a lot of chicken packaging. the ones that say "raised without antibiotics." that's just a trick to get you to pay more money. fact is, by federal law, all chickens must be clear of antibiotics before they leave the farm. it's a marketing gimmick...like mr. floppy arms here.
