Cannabis Possession and Cultivation Now Legal in Alaska

In Alaskathcannabis, it’s now legal for those 21 and older to possess up to an ounce of cannabis, and to cultivate up to six cannabis plants.

Ballot Measure 2, which was approved by voters in 2014 and officially became law at 12:00AM on February 24th, also makes the distribution of cannabis legal through state-licensed cannabis retail outlets (regulated by the Alcoholic Beverage Control Board), though these outlets aren’t expected to open until spring to summer of next year.

With Ballot Measure 2 becoming law, consuming cannabis in public remains illegal, though the penalty has been reduced to a simple $100 ticket.
