Central Valley “nuns” Fight To Keep Their Marijuana Business – Yahoo News

Both Colorado and Washington have struggled to integrate their already-existing medical marijuana systems with the recreational marijuana businesses. Drawing on those states’experience, Alaska regulators decided two business models would be more problematic than one. Marijuana Control Board chair Bruce Schulte said that he personally supports the idea of a tax break for medical patients, but added,theres no way we can get there, at least until 2017, he said. By law, Alaskas voter initiative cannot be substantially changed for the first two years. A medical tax break would amount to a substantial change, he said, given that the initiative is explicit about its $50 per-ounce state tax. Retail stores can offer discounts, but that decision is left solely up to the business owner. With commercial marijuana stores set to open during the summer orautumn of 2016, Schulte believes that the medical community has, in many ways, finally been served by Alaska after so many years of being left with few resources. I get the need, I sympathize I just dont share their concern that weve failed them, Schulte said. Going forward, Alaska Green Angels hopes to become a stand-alone website, where people can connect with others in their community. Eventually, they would like to become a non-profit organization. The plan is to continue providing free cannabis in whatever capacity possible.
