Some activists have a vision for Alaska's upstart marijuana industry that could have Anchorage looking more like Amsterdam in the years ahead.Under the legalization law, passed by voters in 2014, Alaska is on track to become the first state in the nation to allow on-site consumption of marijuana in some businesses that will sell pot.Alaska voters approved legalizing recreational use of marijuana for people 21 and older with the expectation that it would be regulated like alcohol. Emmett said that means allowing pot cafes just like bars.It will take the community a while to get used to having the shops, said Neade, who has expressed interest in allowing for onsite product consumption at the retail shop she hopes to run.Alaska is one of four states that have legalized recreational use of pot, but none have allowed onsite use of the drug.Emmett, the Alaska Marijuana Control Board member, sees onsite consumption in Alaska as a bellwether for the nation.
