Marijuana Laws

On November 4th, 2014 Alaska citizens voted YES on Ballot Measure 2 to legalize marijuana. This act legalizes and taxes marijuana at a wholesale rate of $50 per ounce. This will open up Alaska to recreational facilities.

Possession of less than 25 plants is protected under the Alaska Constitution’s right to privacy.

another reporter added: “Alaska has has a medical marijuana law since March, 1999: “Fifty-eight percent of voters approved Ballot Measure #8 on November 3, 1998. The law took effect on March 4, 1999. It removes state-level criminal penalties on the use, possession and cultivation of marijuana by patients who possess written documentation from their physician advising that they “might benefit from the medical use of marijuana.” Patients diagnosed with the following illnesses are afforded legal protection under this act: cachexia; cancer; chronic pain; epilepsy and other disorders characterized by seizures; glaucoma; HIV or AIDS; multiple sclerosis and other disorders characterized by muscle spasticity; and nausea. Other conditions are subject to approval by the Alaska Department of Health and Social Services. Patients (or their primary caregivers) may legally possess no more than one ounce of usable marijuana, and may cultivate no more than six marijuana plants, of which no more than three may be mature. The law establishes a confidential state-run patient registry that issues identification cards to qualifying patients. To date, approximately 200 cards have been issued to registered patients.
