The people of Alaska will be voting on whether or not to legalize marijuana this November instead of this August like originally planned. The Alaska Division of Elections confirmed that the initiative has been moved to the November 4th general election.

It is once again that time of the year where I look back at all the progress that has been made on marijuana reform since the last 4/20. Since this past November was an odd-numbered year there weren’t any big advances via the ballot but there have been notable advances in implementation and by local legislatures.

This April 20th will have a real impact on the future of marijuana legalization in the United States, and it has nothing to do with the pro-pot celebration taking place that day.

Americans aren’t just voting for legalization at the ballot box but also with their vacation dollars. It will be interesting to see how this aspect plays into the politics in other states.

This is really one of the only stories about any provable negative consequence for the state government. If the worst that happens is a few stolen highway markers I would say legalization is going very well.

It is 4/20 again and time for my annual review of the progress the marijuana reform movement has made in the past 365 days. Without a doubt this was the best year for the movement so far, in the future it may be looked back on as the single most significant year in the long process of ending marijuana prohibition.

With today being the unofficial holiday for cannabis in the United States, it is a good time to look back at the advances the marijuana reform movement has made in the past 365 days.

At yesterday’s Washington State Democratic Convention, party delegates overwhelmingly voted to endorse I-1068, a potential ballot measure to legalize cannabis in the state. This may be another very positive sign that marijuana’s legal status is finally moving away from being some weird moralistic taboo to becoming just another political/policy question to be debated on its merits.
