"Constitutional Right to Marijuana" Alaskan Judge Rules (7/7/03)
An Alaskan Superior Court judge has dismissed a man's conviction for possession of marijuana (including several plants) in his home, ruling that the state's Constitutional guarantee of privacy extends to marijuana use/possession, regardless of the quantity involved. The ruling is not binding on other courts, but may serve as a precedent within the state. The protection does not extend to commercial production or intent to distribute, nor does it protect public use (or even necessarily possession outside of the home), but if this ruling becomes the standard interpretation of the Alaskan constitution, it would at least become perfectly legal to grow your own and toke yourself stupid in the comfort of your own home.
