I would like a legal opinion on Alaska's criminal code as it pertains to marijuana. Alaska voted to legalize marijuana in 2014, and it was enacted February 2015. The "Voter Initiative" was solicited to the voters by "The Campaign to Regulate Marijuana Like Alcohol". The "Ballot Measure No. 2" stated that it superseded conflicting statutes. The Ballot initiative used language like "Notwithstanding any other provision of law, except as provided in this chapter"..... Alaska has a criminal statutes about marijuana, and now they have non-statues about a separate definition of marijuana. THE PROJECT*** I would like a legal opinion about whether AS 11.71.040(b) was "implied repealed" after the enactment of AS 17.38. This would be the crime of selling one ounce or more of a VIA controlled substance (marijuana)- The crime is a Class C Felony. AS 17.38.330 was enacted, and now selling any amount (presumably lbs) inside an area in Alaska that voted out marijuana sales (dry area) that crime is a misdemeanor. Since the law has to make sense.... it would have to be a felony to sell marijuana where sales were allowed, and a misdemeanor to sell marijuana where it wasn't allowed. Or it could be that selling marijuana in an allowed sales area is a fine under "AS 12.37.190 (9) civil penalties for the failure to comply with regulations made under this chapter.".....What happened and what is the authority now? I want an out of state source that is not influenced on this issue. I can provide all the research I have on the topic, which is extensive.
