NOTICE OF PROPOSED CHANGES ON ADMINISTRATIVE HOLD AND SEIZURE IN THE REGULATIONS OF THE MARIJUANA CONTROL BOARD

NOTICE OF PROPOSED CHANGES ON ADMINISTRATIVE HOLD AND SEIZURE

IN THE REGULATIONS OF THE MARIJUANA CONTROL BOARD

 

The Marijuana Control Board proposes to adopt regulation changes in 3 AAC 306 of the Alaska Administrative Code, dealing with administrative hold and seizure, including the following:

  • 3 AAC 306.800(a) adds a provision to allow administrative hold (seizure in place) of marijuana or marijuana product by the director, an enforcement agent, an employee of the board, or a peace officer acting in an official capacity.

     

  • 3 AAC 306.830. Seizure of marijuana or marijuana product is repealed and readopted as written.

     

  • 3 AAC 306.990(b) adds the definition of “probable cause”.

You may comment on the proposed regulation changes, including the potential costs to private persons of complying with the proposed changes, by submitting written comments to Alcohol and Marijuana Control Office at 550 West 7th Avenue, Suite 1600, Anchorage AK 99501. Additionally, the Marijuana Control Board will accept comments by email at amco.regs@alaska.gov. Comments may also be submitted through the Alaska Online Public Notice System by accessing this notice on the system and using the comment link. The comments must be received not later than 4:30pm on April 17, 2020.

You may submit written questions relevant to the proposed action to the Alcohol and Marijuana Control Office at 550 West 7th Avenue, Suite 1600, Anchorage, AK 99501 or to amco.regs@alaska.gov. The questions must be received at least 10 days before the end of the public comment period. The Alcohol and Marijuana Control Office will aggregate its response to substantially similar questions and make the questions and responses available on the Alaska Online Public Notice System and AMCO website.

If you are a person with a disability who needs a special accommodation in order to participate in this process, please contact the Alcohol and Marijuana Control Office at amco.regs@alaska.gov or (907) 269-0350 not later than April 7, 2020, to ensure that any necessary accommodation can be provided.

A copy of the proposed regulation changes is available on the Alaska Online Public Notice System and by contacting the Alcohol and Marijuana Control Office at amco.regs@alaska.gov or (907) 269-0350.

After the public comment period ends, the Alcoholic Beverage Control Board will either adopt the proposed regulation changes or other provisions dealing with the same subject, without further notice, or decide to take no action. The language of the final regulation may be different from that of the proposed regulation. You should comment during the time allowed if your interests could be affected. Written comments received are public records and are subject to public inspection.
