The public can now weigh in on Alaska’s first round of proposed marijuana regulations.
Local option law and marijuana definitions are the focus of the first wave of regulations, unveiled at the Alcoholic Beverage Control Board’s meeting in April.
The proposed definitions include basics like what constitutes a “marijuana plant” and “edible marijuana product,” but also what it means to “possess” a plant or help someone grow marijuana.
The definition of possession could affect how many plants are allowed per household. Under Ballot Measure 2, the initiative that legalized marijuana in the state, a person is allowed to possess six marijuana plants. But under the proposed regulations, if marijuana plants are in a person’s home, they are potentially in that person’s possession, regardless of the number of residents. That would mean only six plants would be allowed in the home, instead of six plants per adult living there. [Read more at the Alaska Dispatch News]
