The Arizona House has voted to approve a bill legalizing recreational marijuana.
The measure was approved by a 45-39 vote Thursday.
The legislation will now head to the Senate.
Supporters say legalizing marijuana will help curb drug use.
The bill would allow marijuana businesses to apply for a license, but not to sell to consumers.
It also gives the state a year to develop a program to provide financial assistance to growers.
It also establishes a task force to study the program.
The Arizona Senate approved the bill in June.
