Alaska, one of the many re-legalized states, is now announcing the framework in which retail cannabis will “soon” be available; “soon” being the weasel word in this equation.
Cynthia Franklin, director of the Alcoholic Beverage Control Board and Marijuana Control Board, introduced regulations regarding who is able to apply for and receive marijuana retail licenses and handler permits. Other issues covered are proposed restrictions on advertising, permitted hours of operation, and health and safety standards for businesses. The public will be able to review and comment on the proposed regulations.
The most anticipated issue addressed at the meeting was regarding regulations for retail license holders. Under this draft, a person with a felony conviction is not eligible to apply. A person who has been charged for distributing cannabis or facilitating its use illegally during the two-year period before the regulations become law is also disqualified. An exception may be made for business owners who have shown good faith in working alongside the Board to bring their companies into compliance with emerging laws.
Another proposed regulation prohibits the delivery of cannabis products away from licensed properties.
