What's funny as that having grown up in Anchorage, AK... Born in 81 & now live in Michigan is that Alaska was the FIRST STATE to have Marijuana legal in many situations, none doctor related. Since 1975 it's a little known fact that a 19 year old+ can grow up to 25 plants legally in their own home. It's 100% legal. So is having up to 4ozs in your home, & using Marijuana in your own home. Most all other outside the home infractions are misdemeanors. Giving some one pot without renumeration (free) is also legal. The only time this law changed is in 2003 they reversed all of that making it all illegal, but a few months later a higher Court reversed the decision of the list court & restored it to all the legal things I mentioned above. Alaska has been ahead of the game for about 30 years. All they need do now is make it completely legal which WILL HAPPEN SOON. The chips were always so lax when I was growing up I got caught smoking cigarettes 3-4 times from 13-16yrs old & always had weed on me, EVERY TIME THEY JUST SMASHED THE WEED ON THE GROUND & TOOK MY SMOKES, NO TICKETS, NOTHING. I moved to Michigan in 1996 & things down here are way different, people go to jail for pot use, selling small quantities etc... They need to take a look at Alaska. One of the richest, clean, pollution free, mountain water from the tap, beautiful & you get paid about $3,000 every November for being an Alaskan Citizen (tax free from oil revenue) plus the economy is always booming, minimum wage is like $11 for even waitresses & pizza delivery. Any recession that his this country has no affect on Alaska. You wouldn't even know one was happening unless you turned on the news. It is one of the largest growing populations in the USA from tourist visiting then deciding to stay. There is so many job openings it's crazy & the money is fantastic. While other world in that state compared to the lower 48 & no the cost of living isn't really that much higher. If you can put up with the cold it's paradise.

Well as usual I disagree with all of you. The woman had a job, a well paying job I bet, and many don't. The disrespectful way of leaving just because she has other income I find repulsive.She embarrassed her boss her coworkers and herself.
If the other venture crashes she will probably have trouble finding another job.

wonderful. that's bowing out in style.
Might have been "style" but it sure lacked "class".
I tend to agree w/you -- but maybe for other reasons.
If this woman wants to garner respect and legitimacy for her cause -- spouting off like that certainly isn't a good way to go about earning it. IMO, I think she did a disservice to the pro-legalization people.
My neighbors both were hooked and they never even looked at their 3 kids all day they sat on the porch doing nothing on welfare.
Dr Oz show had an emergency care Dr on who saved and tried to save but lost many children who got into their Parents eatable pot...legal products...anyone watch that show? The legal products made into candy, sodas and chocolate cookies had the equivalent of over 100 joints, enough to kill even adults were in many products.
Yes here in WA welfare money is going to pot, to stoners who do NOTHING productive and suck on the public teat.
Erm, I call BULL CRAPOLA on this claim. Not true. Not true at all.
She told them, whoever our controllers actually are, to piss off. Smart? Maybe, maybe not. We shall see. Ballsy? Lead, with platinum plating and inlaid with jewels, right upside their heads, metaphorically. You can disagree all you want, but she did something and that something was more than most will ever do.
It was all over mainstream news, they showed how they used their welfare card for cash and went to buy pot.
You all make me feel like the world that once made sense if gone.
