(Juneau, AK) -- Alaska voters will decide this fall whether to make it legal to use marijuana. State officials decided on Monday to put the question on the November ballot, rather than the primary election ballot in August. The change is expected to increase the number of voters, since turnout is higher for Alaska's general elections. If voters approve the measure, Alaska will join Colorado and Washington as the only states where recreational use of weed is legal.
