Alaska is the first state to have a single marijuana industry, rather than separating out medical and recreational markets.
Alaska’s online application for a marijuana business license became available on February 24,
2016. On January 22, 2016, the State adopted final cannabis industry regulations, which entered into force on February 21, 2016.
Note that local communities are allowed to ban any or all types of marijuana businesses. Before getting started, check your local jurisdiction’s ordinance.
