Good news from the North

This just in from The Marijuana Policy Project.
On Wednesday, against all odds, the Alaska House of Representatives voted 21-19 to reject Gov. Frank Murkowski's (R) bill to wipe out Alaska's good marijuana law — the best state marijuana law in the nation.

Wednesday's House vote was a searing setback for Murkowski, but the battle isn't over. Now the House and Senate will meet again to try to work out the differences between the different versions of the bill, so we need to keep the pressure on ... by continuing to run the radio ads and generating more calls from constituents to their state legislators to ensure that a revised version of the bill doesn't pass in the 18 days remaining before the legislative session ends on May 9.
This effort is costing about $1,000 a day. If you got any spare cash, send it to MPP to help underwrite this effort.
