Alaskans fighting for cannabis legalization

Here's an update on the progress of the legalization initiative in Alaska. The project is going ahead full steam thanks to a helping hand from MPP.

Alaskans For Marijuana Regulation and Control has already spent most of the $551,227 buying airtime for radio and television ads, mailing brochures, paying staffers and conducting get-out-the-vote telephone pushes, according to the group's 30-day pre-election campaign disclosure report filed Monday.

All but $510 of the money came from the Washington, D.C.-based Marijuana Policy Project, which is also funding pro-pot initiatives in other states this year.

Opponents of the proposal are of course complaining about outside interests interfering with Alaska's government but MPP is merely providing funding and organizational help to the locals who wish to bring measure forward.
