State officials ‘subverting’ marijuana industry, outgoing board member says

Austin Baird | 

An outgoing member of the Alaska Marijuana Control Board says some officials in Gov. Bill Walker’s administration, as well as remaining board members, are attempting to delay implementation of the voter-approved commercial cannabis industry.

“There’s an underlying agenda to subvert the process, to delay the implementation of a legalized marijuana industry,” says Bruce Schulte, who was abruptly removed from the five-member board on Friday by the governor. “It doesn’t look like the State of Alaska is really serious about making this happen.”

A replacement was not immediately announced.
