The Initiative

Ballot measure 2 is extreme. It is about far more than “legalization;” rather, it is really about the industrialization and commercialization of marijuana, marijuana concentrates and edibles in Alaska, which are potent and dangerous. The initiative would also deny villages and communities the local option to restrict marijuana transportation into their areas.

Why Vote No

There are many reasons why voting no makes sense. For example, if this initiative passes, communities will be exposed to pervasive marijuana advertising, marketing and storefronts that target all Alaskans, including youth. Marijuana concentrates and edibles are packaged in such a way as to appeal to children and teenagers. These products are harmful and have resulted in deaths and hospitalizations in Colorado since marijuana industrialization began there.

The Colorado Story

 On Jan. 1, 2014, the legal sale of recreational marijuana in Colorado took effect. Since that time, dozens upon dozens of news stories detailing the negative fallout of marijuana commercialization have appeared in state and national headlines.
