Alaska legalized weed 39 years ago


In 1975, the Alaska Supreme Court ruled in Ravin v. State that the right to possess, cultivate and consume small amounts of marijuana in the home was protected under the state Constitution's right to privacy. That ruling has faced some opposition over the years, and has been placed into legal limbo from time to time due to various ballot and legislative challenges. But Alaska courts have repeatedly and consistently upheld the notion that Constitutional privacy protections cover the personal possession, cultivation and use of marijuana in Alaska.

Marijuana is illegal in the United States. Yet 35 states and the District of Columbia permit some form of marijuana consumption for medical purposes, and, as of this year, two states now allow its recreational use. As national policy evolves on this issue, the New York Times editorial board this summer published a six-part series calling for legalization. In this lesson, we pull together those opinion pieces as well as many other Times articles, graphics and videos to offer starting points for science, social studies and English teachers aiming to use the debate as an opportunity for learning, research and discussion.

Marijuana Legalization Could Bring In Over $8.7 Million In Tax Revenue

In a little more than a month, District residents will vote to decide if they want to legalize marijuana. While polls show that a majority of D.C. residents favor marijuana legalization, there's still a small population that opposes it.
Among the reasons the group, called T.I.E. D.C., don't want pot legalized is the potential huge amounts of money both corporations and the government stand to gain from the taxation and regulation of marijuana.

Action Of Cannabidiol Against Lung Cancer Cells

In recent years, there has been a growing interest in the use of cannabinoids, such as THC and cannabidiol (CBD), as potential anticancer agents.
