USA. Oregon and Alaska next for legal recreational pot
With USA legal marijuana crusaders basking in the glory of the successful legalisations in Colorado and Washington state, Oregon and Alaska are preparing for their own state votes. Oregon is expected to vote to legalize recreational use in November despite some vocal opposition. If successful, 'Initiative 53' will allow up to 8 ounces (220 grams) at home and a further ounce (28grams) for personal use whilst out and about. This would be a great achievement by the Oregon campaigners, and sets the ‘gold standard’ for other states who are also drafting cannabis legalisation measures of their own. Alaska will also vote for legal recreational cannabis in November, again their is opposition but cannabis campaigners are hoping for a victory
More information is here, one thing for sure, cannabis campaigners have done a great job educating the public about the benefits of legalisation.
