( AP ) - The state will be the next battleground in the effort to legalize marijuana.  Lt.  Gov.  Mead Treadwell, whose office oversees elections, certified a ballot initiative application on Friday that would make it legal for adults to possess up to one ounce of marijuana.  Supporters will have one year to collect 30,169 signatures from qualified voters across the state to get the question on the ballot.  They aim to do this by January.  The effort in Alaska comes after voters in Washington State and Colorado legalized marijuana last year.  The proposal would make it legal for those 21 and older to use and possess up to an ounce of marijuana, though not in public.
