State of Alaska Cannabis Policies & Regulations: A Summary for the Prevention Workforce
September 9, 2020

This document provides a summary of Alaska’s rules and laws to regulate cannabis, and provides the prevention workforce in Alaska with information that supports:

  • Prevention of youth cannabis use
  • Prevention of adult cannabis misuse (heavy use and/or risky behaviors) 

The information is organized into six sections. First, a description of the regulatory bodies that create and oversee the regulatory system; then regulatory components organized as “5 Ps for Prevention.” These elements of regulation are most relevant to preventing any cannabis use by youth and unsafe use by adults.
