Alaska Board to Weigh Rules for Pot Consumption at Stores

JUNEAU, Alaska (AP) — Alaska will soon become the first state in the nation to allow customers to smoke pot and consume marijuana edibles at authorized retail stores.

But rules governing this are still being hammered out, with state regulators set to consider regulations Wednesday in Anchorage.

But don't get too excited yet, especially if you're planning to visit Alaska this summer as a tourist.

The state hasn't issued any business licenses yet, and the first store isn't expected to open until this autumn – after the cruise ship season.

Among the items regulators will consider Wednesday will be deciding how to separate smoking area in stores from the sales side. And then there's the question of what happens to the pot you buy to smoke or eat on the premises but don't finish. Whatever is decided has to go out for public comment.
