On Nov. 4, 53% of Alaska voters approved Measure 2 to legalize and regulate the cultivation, possession, and sale of marijuana in Alaska. Tomorrow, the Fairbanks North Star Borough Assembly, City of Fairbanks, and City of North Pole city councils will hold a special public forum to discuss potential marijuana regulations at the local level.

Local governments have authority under Measure 2 to impose reasonable regulations, such as limitations on business hours and zoning. If you are a Fairbanks North Star area resident, please let your local elected representatives know you appreciate them taking this new law seriously and expect sensible regulations.

Please attend the hearing and testify in favor of allowing licensed cultivation centers and retail stores to do business.

Comments are limited to three minutes. Here are suggested talking points to incorporate into your testimony:

  • Thank you for being proactive, and inviting input from the public.
  • It is early in the process, but deliberate and thoughtful rulemaking is appreciated.
  • Reasonable regulations should protect public safety, but also allow the industry to exist.
  • Local lawmakers should continue studying to prepare for this new industry.

Nearly 60% of voters in the Fairbanks North Star Borough voted for Measure 2. Make sure elected officials hear from that sensible majority.
