The Alaska Marijuana Control Board is seeking public comment by June 19 on proposed changes to the state’s rules for on-site cannabis consumption spaces and the testing and tracking of marijuana.
Among other changes, regulators recommend:
- Allowing retail stores not in freestanding buildings to have on-site consumption of edibles only.
- Increasing the cost of the license fee for marijuana testing facilities.
- Requiring a testing laboratory to submit changes to standard operating procedures to regulators for review and approval.
- Changing requirements for marijuana that has failed testing as well as standards for cultivation and preparation of marijuana samples for testing.
