Alaska marijuana regulators have delayed discussions about onsite marijuana consumption until next month.
The state’s Marijuana Control Board was expected to consider whether to move forward with proposed rules for letting retail cannabis customers to consume their purchases on site
It’s something that no other state that has legalized the recreational use of marijuana has permitted.
The board used its two day meeting to go through a backlog of permit applications for retail stores and manufacturing facilities.
“They really wanted to concentrate on approved applications at this meeting so people could begin with their businesses as we move into summer,” said Erika McConnell, director of the Alcohol and Marijuana Control Board. “Onsite consumption was kind of the big time-consuming issue that they pushed until the end and then we ran out of time. ”
There is a new app for mobile phones that connects marijuana users for dating. And yup, it’s called “High There.”
It’s said to be a tool for allowing cannabis users to find love. The app helps users identify other marijuana consumers who’d like to date based on there preferred methods and habits of cannabis consumption. So far, they say they have 50,000 people using their app and program only functions in states where medical and/or recreational marijuana use are legal. It’s described as both a dating and social connection tool.
Although the ballot was passed last year it’s only yesterday that the new marijuana laws went into effect in Alaska. Now, in this Republican dominated state, adults 21 years or older may possess up to an ounce of marijuana. In addition, legal aged residents may grow up to six marijuana plants for their personal use. However, just like Colorado and Washington state, pot can be consumed only on private property with the owner’s permission.
Recreational marijuana stores have not yet opened. That is because the state has yet to set up the laws needed to regulate retail shops. The ballot initiative requires the state government to formalize rules for recreational marijuana shops by November 24th of this year. Applications for retail licenses will be considered sometime after that. Read more………
