JUNEAU — Public smoking restrictions that recently passed the Alaska Senate could hurt proposed cannabis cafes in the state, a sponsor of the initiative that legalized recreational marijuana in Alaska said Friday.
In a release, Tim Hinterberger said the bill would undermine the current regulatory system.
Late last year, the Marijuana Control Board approved regulations that would allow for onsite consumption of marijuana at authorized retail pot shops. The specific rules surrounding that have yet to be decided. No retail shops have been licensed yet.
