With over 2,000 early-voting ballots remaining to be counted, currently, the efforts to ban legal, taxed and regulated commercial cannabis businesses in the City of Fairbanks, Alaska and the Fairbanks North Star Borough, failed dismally at the polls yesterday at a 2:1 loss.
With oil revenue in the State down for a variety of reasons, the State losing its credit rating at multiple ratings sources, and the quality of life preparing to nose-dive in Alaska by many standards, new revenues and a fresh outlook prevailed over hype and Anslinger-era BS.
The archaic prohibitionist crowd was sent packing at a rate in EXCESS of 2:1 at the polls.
In short, weed won.... Again.
Though you can set your clock to the fact that the prohibitionists WILL be back to challenge this evolution again.... and again... and again. It's what they do. Maybe someone could teach them to knit?? They clearly need a hobby of some sort.
Edit; Title should have read 'rebuffed' not 'refuffed.' Oh well, new eye-glasses, new keyboard, and more coffee are in order...
