Advocates in Alaska On Track to Put Cannabis Legalization to a Vote

An Alaska initiative to legalize cannabis, backed by the Marijuana Policy Project, has gathered more than half of the signatures required to put their proposal to a vote of the people in 2014, after less than 3 months of signature collection. alaskacannabisThe group has until December 1st to collect the remaining signatures, something that they’re well on track to do.

If put on the ballot, and passed into law, the initiative would legalize the use and possession of up to an ounce of cannabis, and would also authorize the state to license retail outlets to distribute cannabis to those 21 and older.

The group is required to collect 30,169 signatures, although they’re aiming for 45,000 to assure that they submit the proper number of valid signatures (only registered Alaska voters count).
