How to Stay Compliant with Child-Resistant Marijuana Packaging Rules in Alaska
Cannabis has been legal for adult recreational use in Alaska since 2015, thanks to the passing of the state’s Measure 2 in 2014. This measure permitted the possession of marijuana flower, mature and immature plants, and other marijuana-infused products, as well as introducing regulations for the packaging and labeling of marijuana products.
Any marijuana or marijuana products sold in Alaska must be packaged in "opaque, resealable, child‐resistant packaging," and that "the packaging must be designed or constructed to be significantly difficult for children under five years of age to open, but not normally difficult for adults to use properly."
In addition, Alaskan cannabis items must also include a label that:identifies the retail marijuana store selling the marijuana product by name or
- distinctive logo and marijuana establishment license number;
- states the estimated amount of total THC in the labeled product;
- and contains each of the following statements:
- "Marijuana has intoxicating effects and may be habit forming and addictive.";
- "Marijuana impairs concentration, coordination, and judgment. Do not operate a vehicle or machinery under its influence.";
- "There are health risks associated with consumption of marijuana.";
- "For use only by adults twenty‐one and older. Keep out of the reach of children.";
- "Marijuana should not be used by women who are pregnant or breastfeeding."
While these regulations appear to be set for now, new legislation is always possible, so it’s a good idea for Alaskan dispensaries and providers to keep a link the state’s Marijuana Statutes and Regulations site handy.
