Alaska’s lieutenant governor approves marijuana onsite consumption guidelines



(This story has been updated with a statement from NORML.)

Alaska’s lieutenant governor signed into law rules to permit on-web site consumption of marijuana at some licensed retailers, becoming the very first state to legalize social cannabis consumption.

The move to approve an on-web site consumption system could create up to $two.four million in new income in the state, according to an informal sector evaluation.

“When these guidelines go into impact, Alaska will be the very first state to finalize and approve statewide guidelines for on-web site consumption. We anticipate additional to adhere to suit in the not-as well-distant future,” NORML Executive Director Erik Altieri mentioned in a statement.

The guidelines will go into impact April 11, the Juneau Empire reported, but nearby governments can ban on-web site consumption by means of ordinance or a voter initiative.
