JUNEAU — A regulatory board in Alaska today will begin accepting applications for marijuana business licenses — the next step in setting up the state’s legal pot industry.
Leif Abel has the date marked on his calendar. He and his partners have been building a facility on the Kenai Peninsula for their company, Greatland Ganja. To apply for a license, prospective business operators need to have secured a site.
That has proven to be a challenge in some parts of the state due to location and zoning restrictions, local community bans or wary property owners.
