FOUR OUNCES OF POT IS LEGAL IN ALASKA; WHAT ELSE IS THERE TO DO?
Without any sourcing, London's Timeonline reported Sunday McCain's VP candidate, Sarah Palin, smoked marijuana in Alaska while it was legal in that state.
Counterbalancing McCain’s reputation as a political dinosaur, Palin smoked pot when it was legal in Alaska, admitting, “I can’t claim a Bill Clinton and say I never inhaled”, and her children, Track, 19, Bristol, 17, Willow, 13, Piper, 7, and Trig, four months, have hippie-sounding names. Track, who joined the US infantry in September last year, is about to be deployed to Iraq. “Two things: isn't it hilarious that a British-based reporter would conclude in his copy the idea that the names of Palin's children sound like something out of the sixties and that marijuana was once legal in Alaska.
In fact, the Alaskan Supreme Court ruled in 1975 that possession of four ounces of marijuana in the home is legal. In 2006, then governor, Frank Murkowski attempted to recriminalize pot. Palin also supported the ban on her way to winning the election.
