Anchorage Opens the Door to Cannabis Cafés
Beginning on February 24, thanks to a ballot initiative approved last November, Alaskans 21 and older will no longer face criminal penalties for marijuana possession (up to an ounce), sharing (ditto), or cultivation (up to six plants, half of them mature). Lest the streets be filled with happy tokers celebrating their new freedom, the Anchorage Assembly yesterday unanimously passed an ordinance that bans marijuana consumption in “public places,” including “places of business or amusement.” But unlike the Denver City Council, which has not seen fit to allow cannabis consumption in any business open to the public, the Anchorage Assembly approved an amendment that makes an exception for consumption “authorized by a state permit or license or authorized by a municipal permit or lease.” That provision leaves open the possibility of businesses that cater to people, including tourists, who want to use marijuana in a setting other than a private residence.
