ANCHORAGE-Elections may be months away, but the season is heating up.
In Anchorage, voters may be casting their vote on pebble mine initiatives, the oil tax repeal, legalizing marijuana and increasing minimum wage.
Washington and Colorado have already legalized marijuana.

Republican Senator, Lisa Murkowski says her stance on drugs and alcohol has not shifted since the days even before she was a parent.
Democrat counterpart, Sen. Mark Begich is more elusive on his feelings about the initiative. says it's up for the voters to decide.
Both Senators agree an increase in minimum wage is needed nationally and locally. Sen. Begich is sponsoring a bill in Washington D.C. for this reason.
