NOTICE OF PROPOSED CHANGES ON REINSTATEMENT OF LICENSE – FAILURE TO RENEW IN THE REGULATIONS OF THE MARIJUANA CONTROL BOARD

NOTICE OF PROPOSED CHANGES ON REINSTATEMENT OF LICENSE – FAILURE TO RENEW 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 reinstatement of license – failure to renew, including the following:

  • 3 AAC 306.035 is amended, including adding new subsections, to allow for a licensee to submit a renewal application along with a statement of reasons for failure to submit a renewal application on time no later than September 30 of the year on which the license expired.
  • 3 AAC 306.080 is repealed and readopted for logical progression. The “new” language is (c) which lays out provisions for which the board will deny an application for reinstatement including, but not limited to, the application was submitted later than September 30 of the applicable year, the applicant was granted a reinstatement within ten years prior, or the failure to submit a timely renewal application is due to excusable oversight.
  • Adds the word/phrase “reinstatement” or “license reinstatement” to 3 AAC 306.085, 3 AAC 306.090, and 3 AAC 306.095.
  • 3 AAC 306.100 adds a (unknown) non-refundable reinstatement fee.

It is strongly recommended that a person affected by this change submit a comment that includes a suggestion(s) on the amount the non-refundable reinstatement fee should be.  The board wants to hear from you on this.

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.
