  1. Polls and poles. Legalize cannabis now 2014 in Alaska. People want justice now! We do not want to support a criminal market. Legalize cannabis now. Every state in our good ole US of A

  2. I was concerned to hear cannabis legalization vote is getting a negative response in Alaskan poles. I am curious how strong the black market is there and I wonder if their state just does not need the monies for services like the rest of the main land US of America. I don’t want to support the black market when I see what legalized cannabis sales can do for a state like Colorado! It is just marvelous! Take note they voted for Sarah Palin to be their leader at 1 point so yes please step up with more messages about what legal cannabis sales can do for their pelople. Ignorance is NOT BLISS! Legalize NOW. The goal is sea to shining sea. Legal cannabis for all adults.
