    Alaska moves another step closer to August marijuana-legalization vote

    Alaska moved one big step closer Tuesday to a public vote on legalizing marijuana.
    On Tuesday, a ballot initiative campaign to decriminalize and regulate pot reached the signature threshold necessary under state election law to put the issue on the Aug. 19 primary ballot.
    In a poll, 55% of Alaskans are in favor of legalization. The dominos are falling, one by one, folks. Texas is not too far behind either. This week Rick Perry said that he was in favor of decriminalization right here in Texas. Soon we will have plenty of room in our prisons for REAL criminals. Let the trend continue. I'll drink smoke to that.

    This is perfect. The government wants fewer people because of Obamacare to work and now they can sit at home getting stoned and eating Doritos. Here's a stock tip. Buy Frito Lay.

    Drugs should be legalized period. High risk drugs should be treated as prescription medicine.
    I'm afraid that smoking and drinking would then be prescription drugs.

    That's always been the liberal plan.

    There is probably even more support for that here but the Conservatives won't risk their tough on crime image, even if its is just pot smokers. All political parties in B.C. support I believe as that is where most of the weed in North America is grown.

    I don't agree with that assessment. Alaska is one of the reddest states in the Union, and they are overwhelmingly for it. Even Rick Perry favors decriminalization.

    I'm talking about our Canadian Conservatives. Their entire campaign was based around being tough on crime and most of the people in our overpopulated prisons are there for marijuana charges. The Criminal Code is a federal matter so legalization would have top be passed through the Conservative majority.

    Please cite your source for this.

    It's doubtful the conservatives will still be in power after the next federal election, so decriminalization could happen within a few years.
