Rob Kampia of the Marijuana Policy Project, a major force in the legalization of pot in Colorado and Washington, says that Alaska — not California — will be the next state to legalize weed. "The polling's good," he said of Alaska. "It's a cheap state," he added, referring to the fact that it will be far less costly to run a legalization campaign there than in the Golden State. "We can do it."
Kampia, who is the head of MPP, said Alaskan voters will end pot prohibition at the ballot box. The first legislature to legalize marijuana will be Rhode Island, he predicted.
