Alaska to Become the First State with Onsite Marijuana Consumption

By  | 

FAIRBANKS, Alaska - Alaska is set to become the first state in the nation with statewide rules allowing people to use marijuana at approved stores at the time of purchase.
The new rules will take effect April 11th.
The Marijuana Control Board approved the rules in December, and Lt. Governor Kevin Myer signed and filed the regulations Tuesday.
Interested businesses will have to file an application, and make a plan that meets security, ventilation and other standards to gain board approval.
According to Erika McConnell, director of the Alcohol and Marijuana Control Office, the earliest they will consider applications will most likely be July.
