Alaskans Can Legally Light Up Today

There has been a lot going on in cannabis legislation in Alaska. A former state senator was recently named the CEO of a pot company and another senator just recently proposed an industrial hemp bill. And let’s not forget that last November residents of the state legalized recreational cannabis for adults.

Today, Alaskans have officially been given the green light to possess up to an ounce of pot, grow up to six plants and smoke cannabis in the privacy of their homes. According to reports, sales will likely not start for some time as the Alaska Alcoholic Beverage Control Board still has to set regulations for buying and selling cannabis.

Interestingly, Alaska is the first Republican state to legalize marijuana.
