The burning question: is weed legal in Alaska?
The answer: YES.
AS 17.38 (Alaska Marijuana Legalization, Ballot Measure 2) was put on the ballot for the November 4th, 2014 election day. The ballot measure passed with a vote of 53.23 for to 46.77 against.
Unlike many states with stricter medical marijuana laws, Alaska allows the sale and consumption of cannabis recreationally.
Like, alcohol, the sale and consumption of marijuana is regulated. If you want to get high in Alaska, here are the laws you’ll need to follow:
- You have to be 21 years or older
- You can possess (transport, display, use) marijuana accessories and up to one ounce of cannabis.
- You can grow six plants, with 3 or less being mature at any one time.
- You cannot consume marijuana in public (fines are $100).
- You must make sure any plants you grow are away from easily being viewed.
