Alaska medical marijuana laws have been in effect since November 3, 1998.
Measure 8 was passed by ballot vote with 58 % in favor of legalizing marijuana in Alaska for medical patients.
Once you have your doctor's written recommendation it is a requirement that you register with the Alaska Department of Health and Social Services.
They will supply you with the necessary applications along with a non refundable $25 application fee.
Make sure to fill out all the necessary information, and have all your Identification cards handy because most applications that are denied happens because they aren't completed properly.
If you are a registered patient and are caught with marijuana you are able to use affirmative defense in court.
Patients can be charged if they don't abide by these rules. The Alaska medical marijuana quantity guidelines say that you can have one ounce of marijuana in usable form, but you can't have more than six marijuana plants, three that are harvestable at any one time.
