In a two-day public comment period in Alaska regarding proposed recreational cannabis rules, many Alaskans expressed concerns over a proposed ban on marijuana clubs that would allow for the consumption of marijuana onsite.
The ban would limit consumers to partaking in marijuana use within their homes, although many landlords have banned that as well. In effect, many Alaskans feel that cannabis might as well not have been legalized in the first place.
Lawyers have told the Alaska Marijuana Control Board that, because the ballot measure that legalized marijuana did not explicitly mention the legality of clubs, it doesn’t have the right to legalize them either.
Officials must approve any changes to the rules by November 24.
