The Alaska Marijuana Control Board voted to seek public comment on tweaks to statewide rules that allow onsite use of marijuana at authorized stores.

On-site consumption rules that took effect last month refer to stores in freestanding buildings, consistent with language in a statewide smoke-free workplace law, and include ventilation requirements.

The proposed changes would allow stores not in freestanding buildings to have on-site consumption of edibles only.

They also would clarify that special ventilation systems would be required only for on-site use areas allowing smoking.

No businesses have been approved yet for on-site consumption.
