Talking Marijuana Legislation Amidst Anchorage Spice Problem

Marijuana Plant

Spice, an illegal form of synthetic marijuana, has become a chronic issue on Anchorage’s streets. This cheap drug is popular among Anchorage’s low income and homeless population, it elicits a quick high and effects people differently. KRUA spoke with Assemblyman Ernie Hall who sits on the Assembly Committee on Regulation and Taxation of Marijuana. KRUA also interviewed Nicole Crites, whose husband runs a Medical Marijuana business and who has been giving free Marijuana to people who will destroy their Spice in front of her, about the possibility of the legal retail sale of marijuana providing a legal and safer alternative to spice.

  • Spice can be so addictive, I always remember a story where some youths took Spice to Dubai and ended up in prison. To be fair the heath risks that legal drugs are causing is pushing Marijuana closer and closer to legalization

  • “the possibility of the legal retail sale of marijuana providing a legal and safer alternative to spice”

    There is truly some sad irony in this sentence when you consider what was one of the biggest things that caused spice to come into existence in the first place – the illegality of marijuana.
