In case you missed it (I did until I read last week's NORML newsletter): The Alaska Supreme Court has declined to hear the state attorney general's challenge to an appeals court ruling that said it's still legal for Alaskans to possess up to four ounces of marijuana in their homes, notwithstanding a 1990 ballot initiative to the contrary. The Court of Appeals said voters could not overturn the Alaska Supreme Court's interpretation of the state constitution's privacy clause. The Supreme Court, perhaps not surprisingly, seems to agree. UPI reports that "Attorney General Gregg Renkes told the Anchorage Daily News he agreed the personal-use allowance is now the law, saying 'I respect and will abide by' the decision."
