Alaska, one of the re-legalized states, is set to license production of recreational cannabis. Here’s more:
Marijuana regulators in Alaska are poised to award the state’s first recreational cannabis business licenses, according to an Associated Press report. Today’s meeting agenda for the Marijuana Control Board includes hearings in which 30 applications will be considered. 28 applicants are for recreational cultivation licenses, while the other two are for testing facilities.
The Marijuana Control Board is using a staggered approach in its recreational marijuana licensing process, focusing first on producers and testing labs so that a sufficient stockpile of consumer-safe products is established before the licensing and opening of cannabis retailers. Regulators expect to start licensing retailers in September, according to Cynthia Franklin, director of the Alcohol and Marijuana Control Office.

It looks like Alaska was paying attention to the experience of Colorado and Washington. Knowing you have adequate quantities of consumer-safe product on hand before the first day of retail sales just makes sense.
