IncSmart Alaska (Small Business and Startups) - The City of Anchorage Assembly urged state marijuana regulators to pass laws allowing tourists and locals to smoke or consume marijuana in retail shops, saying it's a problem that tourists and locals can buy commercial pot products but can't legally smoke it outside of private homes. Alaska Marijuana Control Board is meeting in Fairbanks this week. The statewide regulatory board is expected to weigh several proposals related to marijuana consumption in retail stores.
Some international cities such as Amsterdam, have allowed marijuana cafes for customers to buy and use pot. Public consumption in Anchorage is illegal. Smoking or consuming pot in public areas, including in public parks, is illegal under city and municipal law. The Anchorage City Assembly also approved a license for a third downtown pot shop. There are also six head shops in the Anchorage metro area, with an additional three in Wasilla.
