2014 Marijuana Legalization Initiatives Underway in Three States

June 18th

The race to be the next state to legalize marijuana at the ballot box is on. Activists in three states — Alaska, Arizona, and Oregon — have taken initial steps to get the issue before the voters during the 2014 general election.

In Alaska, Lt. Gov. Mead Treadwell last Friday certified a ballot initiative application that would legalize the possession of up to an ounce of marijuana by adults. Backed by the Marijuana Policy Project, the initiative would also set up a system of taxed and regulated marijuana commerce. Adults could grow up to six marijuana plants for their personal use.

Proponents will have one year to gather 30,169 valid voter signatures to qualify for the ballot. But they have to wait a week or so for the state elections division to begin printing the petition booklets.

Alaska already allows for adults to possess small amounts of marijuana in their homes under the state Supreme Court’s interpretation of the state constitution’s privacy provisions.

In Arizona, Safer Arizona is sponsoring an initiative to amend the state constitution to allow for legal, taxed, and regulated marijuana use and commerce. The group READ MORE

Alaska Certifies 2014 Marijuana Legalization Ballot Initiative Application

June 15th

ANCHORAGE, AK — Alaska’s Lt. Gov. Mead Treadwell has certified ballot initiative application that would make it legal for adults to possess up to one ounce of marijuana in the state.

Activists now have one year to collect 30,169 signatures from qualified voters across the state to get the question on the ballot.

The proposed ballot question would legalize marijuana for adults 21 or older, who would be allowed to possess up to one ounce.  The initiative would also establish a system of regulated marijuana retail sales, legal growing, and establish an excise tax on recreational marijuana.

The proposal would create state-regulated marijuana stores, cultivation facilities, marijuana infused-product manufacturers, and marijuana testing facilities.  It would also allow adults to have up to six marijuana plants.

Also included in the proposed initiative is  a $100 fine for anyone caught smoking marijuana in public, which is currently a class B misdemeanor.

The retail marijuana industry in Alaska would be overseen by the state’s Alcoholic Beverage Control Board, but the state legislature would have the option of creating a separate Marijuana Control Board to oversee the industry.

The state elections division will now begin printing petition booklets, which will take about a week.  Once the booklets are ready. . . . . READ MORE

Arizona 2014 Marijuana Legalization Drive Underway

June 14th

PHOENIX, AZ — A drive is underway in Arizona to try to gather enough signatures from registered voters to place a constitutional amendment on the 2014 Arizona ballot that would allow the legalization and regulation of the adult use of marijuana by adults 18 years of age or older.

Grassroots reform organization Safer Arizona filed the necessary paperwork Wednesday to start gathering the 259,213 signatures they need to put the issue of legalization on the 2014 ballot. They have through July 3, 2014 to gather the necessary signatures.

Safer Arizona says the proposal is based on revised versions of the ballot measures approved by Colorado and Washington state voters in 2012.

“The intent of the initiative is to legalize marijuana in Arizona and to treat it as we treat alcohol,” said Dennis Bohlke, of Safer Arizona.

Bohlke said the group has no major financial backing to fund signature gathering, and that the initiative campaign will be a grassroots effort relying on volunteers to collect signatures.

 Bohlke acknowledged the lack of major funding will be a handicap, but remains optimistic.
“I’m feeling quite confident that we’ll be able to get the 259,213 signatures,” he said.

If successful, the ballot initiative would amend the state Constitution to allow people 18 and older to consume or possess limited amounts” of marijuana.
