On-site consumption not blocked for Alaska pot retailers
February 06, 2017
Chambers made this clarification following the Marijuana Control Board’s meeting of February 2, 2017. Chambers stated in a news release, "Their decision [Thursday] on relevant proposed regulations does not preclude the board from approving operating plans including onsite consumption; it merely ceased the current proposal to clarify those standards in regulation at this time."
Thursday, the Marijuana Control Board considered a proposal that would clarify the regulatory standards. However, that proposal was rejected by a 3-2 vote.
Chambers cited existing regulations that allow onsite consumption if authorized by the board:
Chambers said licensed retailers that want to allow onsite consumption in a designated area of the premises are encouraged to submit Form MJ-15 Operating Plan Change and related documents for board review. These documents are currently available on the board’s web site.
Retail store licensees that have board-approved onsite consumption operating plans may allow customers to consume products purchased on site per 3 AAC 306.305(a)(4) said Chambers.
Becasue of high call volume, applicants with questions regarding the licensing process should be submitted via email to firstname.lastname@example.org to expedite a response.
