Here are the 20 Anchorage marijuana shops closest to opening

 & 

Empty storefronts scattered here and there across Anchorage are about to be reincarnated as part of Alaska’s newest industry: marijuana. Several are hoping to open before the end of the year.

Alaska Dispatch News compiled a list of 20 shops closest to opening in the Anchorage Bowl, along with photos of where they plan to be located.

Many of the shops are clustered in the Spenard and Midtown areas, downtown, and the industrial/warehouse area south of Dowling Road. This clustering is due to state-mandated buffer zones between schools and other facilities, and because many properties are older, and less expensive, than the city’s prime real estate — an important consideration for an industry barred from receiving federally insured bank loans.
