Alaska marijuana initiative moved to November ballot

In case you missed it, Ballot Measure 2 has been moved off the primary election ballot and will now appear on the general election ballot on November 4.

The reschedule is due to a constitutional provision that requires initiatives to be placed on the first statewide ballot 120 days following the end of the legislative session. When the state legislature failed to adjourn its session on time this past Sunday night, the initiative was automatically moved to the November ballot.

The date of the election is not an issue for the Campaign to Regulate Marijuana Like Alcohol in Alaska because Alaska voters support regulating marijuana like alcohol by a wide margin. According to a recent poll, 55 percent of voters in Alaska agree that it’s time to make marijuana legal, with only 39 percent opposed.

Additionally, the change of ballot provides extra time to organize volunteers, register voters, and spread the word that it’s time for a new approach that would take marijuana sales out of the hands of criminals in the underground market and put it behind the counters of licensed, taxpaying businesses.

If you want to see an end to marijuana prohibition in Alaska, please sign up as a volunteer or make a donation to the campaign today so they can continue their efforts through November.

With your help and continued support, Alaska will make history this November!

Sincerely,
