20 Northwest Arkansas TIMES, Thur*., Od. 17, 1974 FAYETTEVILLI, A*KAN»A» ^^ Alaska Court To Consider Drug Legality · 'ANCHORAG1C. Alaska ( A P ) -- The Alaska Supreme Court hat, laken under advisement a case chnlleirging Hie con-, stitulionaliiy of marijuana laws in what could become .a landmark case'In .the United States. 'Lawyers for defendant Irwin. Ravin, an Anchorage attorney, argued Wednesday that 30.000 Alaskans, have used or possessed marijuana at least once. The lawyers also cited statistics from the 1973 National Commission on M a r i j u a n a and Drug Abuse which determined that almost 26 million Americans have tried marijuana at least once. : R a v i n was arrested on a marijuana possession charge y f l c r being searched by police v.'licti he refused to sign a traffic ticket in December 1972. Last November, U.S. District Court Judge Dorothy Tyncr denied a motion to dismiss Ravin's case on grounds of uncon- siiUilionalUy. A Superior Court upheld Tyncr's decision. In Ravin's appeal, the slate Supreme Court will consider these questions: P R I V A T E USE --Does restriction of mari- j u a n a use in private violale U.S. and state constitutional guarantees of l i b e r t y ? --Do the restrictions violate fin individual's right to privacy: --(s it irrational to classify marijuana with other, more dangerous drugs? Does the legality of alcohol ai;d the illegality of m a r i j u a n a deny those 'who wish to smoke marijuana due process of law? Ravin's lawyers say the burden of proof lies with the government to show there is a ''compelling public interest" in prohibiting use of the drug. A r g u i n g for the state. Steve Dunning, an assistant district aflorney, described privacy as probably (he "most amorphous of all righls . . . this is a right which conceivably could swallow an enormous area of legislative power, "1 am not conceding this court must be convinced by the evidence," Dunning said." "If Lawyer Dies BROOKUNE, Mass. (AP) Claude Cross. 81, the defense lawyer at Alger Hiss' second perjury trial in 1349. died Wednesday. Cross defended Hiss when he was tried on charges of having lied aboul passing government secrets to the Russians. Hie quantum evidence (for legalization) is sufficient, I think the court should defer lo the legislature." The state high court has six months lo render a decision on the challenge.
