PHOENIX - Arizona could soon be the next state to allow medical marijuana use.

The Arizona Medical Marijuana Policy Project is pushing for the issue to be on the 2010 ballot.

The initiative would make possessing and using a limited amount of marijuana legal under Arizona law for certain illnesses.

Marijuana has been shown to relieve nausea and vomiting caused by cancer chemotherapy treatments and to relieve nerve pain for those suffering from multiple sclerosis.

A poll taken this year showed 65% of Arizona supports the proposed medical marijuana law.
