Alaska's governor is pushing a bill to recriminalize marijuana in the state - and trigger a constitutional challenge that he hopes to win this time.
Alaska laws regarding the possession of the drug are the most liberal in the country. Residents may possess up to a quarter-pound of marijuana for use in the home.
But Frank Murkowski's bill would make possession of less than four ounces a misdemeanor and possession of four ounces and more a felony.
So were drugs that much of a problem in Alaska to begin with?
