FAIRBANKS — Alaska’s newly appointed Marijuana Control Board has proposed four changes to state marijuana laws.
The board held its first meeting Thursday in Fairbanks. They signed off on statutory changes it wants the Alaska Legislature to change in last year’s ballot measure that legalized commercial marijuana, reported The Fairbanks Daily News-Miner.
The four issues include allowing cannabis clubs, updating criminal law, clarifying the difference between a personal grow and an illegal operation, and giving villages the ability to opt out of commercial marijuana sales.
During the campaign, sponsors said communities and villages that did not want commercial marijuana sales could choose not to have them, but the language used in the initiative, which refers to “local governments,” has proved to be a problem.
