Nearly 40 years ago, the Alaska Supreme Court rules that a person’s right to posses and enjoy marijuana was protected under the Alaska Constitution’s right to privacy. Alaska then formally legalized recreational marijuana use in November of 2014, passed with a 53%-47% vote. People who are aged 21 and older are allowed to possess up to an ounce of cannabis and grow up to six plants in the privacy of their homes. But until now, Alaskans had nowhere to buy it. Retail cannabis stores are scheduled to open in Alaska this fall.
