Voters in Alaska will have the opportunity to break new legal ground this November when they vote on a proposal to legalize, for those 18 years or older, the possession, cultivation, distribution or consumption of marijuana. Further the initiative would provide amnesty to those individuals currently imprisoned for offenses which would become legal under this proposal. 
This initiative, known as the 2000 Hemp Initiative, qualified for the November ballot when proponents turned in more than 40,000 signatures, nearly double the required number to qualify an issue for the state ballot. "This is not one of those initiatives being funded by the large donors who provided funding for many of the medical use initiatives over the last four years; rather it is a grassroots operation being funded by small donations from individuals.Alaska presents a unique opportunity to ask the voters to leap beyond decriminalization and support full legalization. Please consider making a contribution to help the proponents mount an effective campaign, including a statewide media campaign this fall.For more information, contact:Free Hemp in AlaskaAl Anders, Chair2603 Spenard RoadAnchorage, Alaska 99503 (907) 278-HEMP E-mail: freehempinak gci.netVisit their web site: Hemp 2000R.L.

A lot going on
I wonder if the war lords can keep up with all the fronts being created in this war. They gotta be getting pretty thin.Seems that many states are definitely challenging the federal government. They will have to concede and the election of a new president might be the catalyst.This person would not have to appoint a CZAR maybe demote the position and let it focus on health issues rather than paramilitary issues. Or let it be the CZAR of Health and wellbeing.Now that's a pipe dream.PeaceRainbow
