Alaskan Cannabis Business Reserved for Alaskans

Alaska is in the midst of writing the rules for its new legal recreational cannabis industry. It looks like the doors will be closed to non-Alaskans getting a license, though.


The board tasked with writing rules for Alaska’s recreational marijuana industry backtracked Tuesday and adopted stricter residency requirements for applicants for pot business licenses.

The Marijuana Control Board scuttled a rule that was adopted last month, which would use the residency requirements needed to vote in Alaska in favor of using more stringent standards needed to qualify for the yearly check from Alaska’s oil wealth fund.

During a meeting, held on Tuesday in Anchorage, the board approved using the residency requirements for the Permanent Fund Dividend, which include being a resident of the state for a full calendar year.

Under the rules, as currently written, only those holding a marijuana license can have financial interest in the business. And to get a license for a pot business, you would have to meet residency requirements.
