Marijuana Is Now Officially Legal in Alaska
Published on Feb 25, 2015
Tuesday February 24th, 2014 marks the first day in Alaska's legalization of marijuana and the fourth state to legalize recreational use. Adults in Alaska can now consume cannabis in their homes, as well as grow up to six plants for personal use. Public use has a $100 fine attatched to it, and the state is stressing safe consumption of marijuana, especially in edibles.
Alaska officials have already visited Colorado to see how the social experiment is being run there, and they’re planning on a visit to Washington soon. Franklin is grateful that her state, the fourth to legalize marijuana, had a chance to learn from those trailblazers’ successes and challenges.
