Alaska Gov. Bill Walker: Respect Voters, Appoint an Ally to the Marijuana Control Board
This petition made change with 256 supporters!
On July 29, 2016, one of the strongest advocates of sensible marijuana policies on the Marijuana Control Board — Bruce Schulte — was sacked! Now, Gov. Bill Walker must name another appointee to the five-member body that is charged with licensing and regulating marijuana businesses.
There’s a real danger that the board could end up being hostile to its mission — taking marijuana sales off the criminal market and regulating cannabis like alcohol. The board’s new chairman is even collecting signatures to propose a ban on marijuana businesses in the Kenai Peninsula Borough!
Gov. Walker’s new appointee will likely determine whether the board chooses progress or delay, and whether it upholds or subverts the people’s marijuana law. Urge him to stand up for the people’s marijuana regulation law, and to ensure that a strong ally of legalization and regulation takes Bruce Schulte’s place.
