Alaska rejects marijuana consumption at retail pot stores
JUNEAU, Alaska (AP) — Marijuana regulators in Alaska on Thursday narrowly rejected a proposal that would have made the state the first in the nation to allow marijuana consumers to use the pot that they buy at the retail stores selling it.
In a 3-2 vote, the Alaska Marijuana Control board decided not to allow it – prompting criticism from retailers who vowed to continue to press for some sort of allowable marijuana use at their stores.
The proposed new rules would have let people buy marijuana products in authorized stores and go into separate store areas to partake.
Board member Mark Springer, among those who voted to reject the measure, said he was worried how the new administration of President Donald Trump might view marijuana use at retail stores in Alaska.
It remains illegal at the federal level but has also been legalized in 7 other U.S. states and the District of Columbia.

Texas Officials Warn: Marijuana Much Preferable to Fake Marijuana
“It felt like my body was just failing on me,” a teen wrote on Erowid.org, describing the highs promised by synthetic marijuana, the random scraps of plant material sprayed with random chemicals sold in gas stations, smoke shops and on the street as a cheap, and sometimes sort-of-legal, alternative to actual cannabis. In case you think that sounds like fun—don’t.
“My organs were not working any further, it was just shutting down,” the teen wrote. “I began to shake much like someone would during a seizure.”
The serious health risk posed by synthetic cannabinoids are becoming well known, which is good, because they sound like fake news. Synthetic marijuana is believed to be the cause of the “mass casualty event” last summer in New York, when ambulances were dispatched to reports of people wandering around in a “zombielike’ state. Fake weed is causing such a stir in San Antonio, Texas—with first responders responding to eight calls of synthetic marijuana poisoning in a four-hour period on Jan. 26 and users experiencing the same mannequin challenge-winning “freezing (like a statue)” seen in New York, as well as vomiting, nausea, kidney problems and the occasional psychotic episode—that fire officials are showing tacit approval for much-safer, regular, old, outlawed marijuana.
