Department  of Health  and Social  Services  (DHSS), briefed  the                                                               
members  on medical  marijuana.  He explained  that probably  the                                                               
most common  use by physicians  is to treat neuropathic  pain. It

multiple sclerosis  (MS) and surveys  suggest that  10-15 percent                                                               
of MS  patients use medical  marijuana for relief.  Other studies                                                               
have provided  evidence that medical marijuana  reduces pain from

CHAIR  MCGUIRE  offered  her understanding  that  some  of  these                                                               
derivatives do not have hallucinogenic effects.                                                                                 
DR  BUTLER replied  the derivatives  do not,  but the  oral spray                                                               
contains THC so it would have the same effect as THC.                                                                           
CHAIR  MCGUIRE asked  him to  differentiate the  effects when  he                                                               
describes different products.                                                                                                   
DR  BUTLER informed  the committee  that there  are two  types of                                                               
cannabinol  receptors in  the  body. CB  1  receptors, which  are                                                               
primarily in  the central nervous  system and  peripheral nerves,                                                               
are most often associated with  the psychogenic effects. The CB 2                                                               
receptors are in certain nerves and some immune cells.                                                                          
He advised  that the actual  use of medical marijuana  requires a                                                               
physician statement  that the patient  has one of  the qualifying                                                               
medical  conditions listed  in  AS 17.37,  but  not the  specific                                                               
condition. The statute requires the  patient to be under the care                                                               
of  a physician  in a  "bonafide physician/patient  relationship"                                                               
and it has provisions to accommodate caregivers.                                                                                
The  physician statement  is  submitted to  the  Bureau of  Vital                                                               
Statistics within  the Department  of Health and  Social Services                                                               
which  maintains  the  medical   marijuana  registry  and  issues

of his/her driver's  license and state ID card. The  same type of                                                               
identification  is  required for  any  caregiver  who is  covered                                                               
under the  certificate. The certification  must be  renewed every

parental statement is required.                                                                                                 
DR.  BUTLER  reported that  831  Alaskans  are currently  in  the                                                               
medical  marijuana  registry,  including 6  minors.  The  medical                                                               
marijuana statutes  do not  address how  to obtain  the marijuana                                                               
and there  are no dispensaries  in the state.  Anecdotal evidence                                                               
indicates it is not difficult to obtain.                                                                                        
1:46:41 PM                                                                                                                    
SENATOR WIELECHOWSKI  asked if a person  has to reach a  level of                                                               
intoxication to achieve relief for a medical condition.                                                                         
DR. BUTLER  replied intoxication  is dependent on  the individual                                                               
and  their   susceptibility  and  experience  with   the  use  of                                                               
marijuana products.                                                                                                             
SENATOR COGHILL asked  how many cards have been  issued to people                                                               
under age 21.                                                                                                                   
DR. BUTLER replied  he didn't have the number for  18, 19, and 20

SENATOR   COGHILL  advocated   requiring   parental  consent   to                                                               
administer medical marijuana to someone under age 21.                                                                           
SENATOR WIELECHOWSKI  asked if there  is research on  the impacts                                                               
of secondhand  smoke from  marijuana and the  impacts on  a fetus                                                               
from the use of marijuana.                                                                                                      
DR.  BUTLER   replied  exhaled   marijuana  smoke   does  contain                                                               
compounds recognized to  be harmful, but the  data are inadequate                                                               
to  quantify the  risk. With  regard to  the second  question, he                                                               
confirmed  that  THC crosses  the  placenta  and is  excreted  in                                                               
breast  milk.  He  noted  that the  most  recent  pregnancy  risk                                                               
assessment  monitoring system  (PRAM) survey  in Alaska  suggests                                                               
that  about 7  percent  of pregnant  women  report having  smoked                                                               
marijuana during pregnancy. Some  data suggests that smaller size                                                               
babies may  be associated with  marijuana exposure, but  it's not                                                               
clear because a large proportion  of marijuana smokers also smoke

SENATOR WIELECHOWSKI asked if there is  data on how long it would                                                               
take to be under the influence from secondhand smoke.                                                                           
DR. BUTLER replied  the concept of a secondhand high  is not well                                                               
supported in the medical literature.                                                                                            
SENATOR COSTELLO asked  if there is talk within DHSS  of adding a                                                               
question  about  the use  of  marijuana  to the  Behavioral  Risk

SENATOR  MICCICHE questioned  the  need for  a medical  marijuana                                                               
separate statute once marijuana is regulated like alcohol.                                                                      
DR. BUTLER  opined that  it will probably  take several  years to                                                               
know  if there  will be  a continuing  need for  a registry  once                                                               
people can get medical marijuana over  the counter. But it may be                                                               
useful  to have  a  registry for  people under  age  21 who  need                                                               
medical  marijuana and  for  those  who are  hesitant  to use  it                                                               
without some documentation of the need.                                                                                         
SENATOR MICCICHE  asked if other  states cover  medical marijuana                                                               
in an insurance plan.                                                                                                           
DR. BUTLER  offered to follow up,  but he suspects the  answer is

TRACEY  WOLLENBERG, Deputy  Public Defender,  Appellate Division,                                                               
Alaska  Public  Defender  Agency,  described version  I  as  more                                                               
consistent with the  voter intent in Ballot Measure  2, but noted                                                               
that some inconsistencies persist.                                                                                              
She focused on Section 50  to highlight inconsistencies with Sec.                                                               
17.38.020 of the  initiative, which the bill  repeals. She argued                                                               
that  defining   marijuana  in  terms  of   aggregate  weight  is                                                               
inconsistent with  the initiative, which  defines it in  terms of                                                               
the  number of  plants, not  the  weight. The  definition in  the                                                               
initiative gives  clear guidance  to the  public that  they can't                                                               
possess more  than six plants, but  they may not know  or be able                                                               
to  control the  aggregate weight.  Allowing the  marijuana grown                                                               
from those plants on the premises  where the plants were grown is                                                               
consistent with  the idea of  making marijuana a  legal substance                                                               
that is treated like alcohol.                                                                                                   
2:01:05 PM                                                                                                                    
SENATOR COGHILL questioned whether the  language on page 29, line                                                               
15, was  consistent with  the initiative  or if  it needed  to be                                                               
MS.  WOLLENBERG  replied that  language  is  consistent with  the                                                               
initiative,  but  she  would  suggest  adding  language  about  a                                                               
certain amount of usable marijuana  and eliminating the aggregate                                                               
weight provision. She cautioned  that ascribing some weight apart                                                               
from  the plants  will be  tricky because  the initiative  allows                                                               
possession of all the marijuana produced from six plants.                                                                       
SENATOR  COGHILL  said  the  goal  was  to  maintain  consistency                                                               
between  the initiative  and  the  law defined  by  the court  in                                                               
MS. WOLLENBERG suggested it might be  worthwhile to find out if a                                                               
range  of  weights  can  be  ascribed to  a  plant  in  order  to                                                               
determine whether  four ounces  is a  realistic limit.  She noted                                                               
that  the court  of appeals  in Alaska  has determined  that four                                                               
ounces in one's home is presumed constitutional under Ravin.                                                                    
SENATOR  MICCICHE  asked  about  the  significance  of  flowering                                                               
versus non-flowering plants.                                                                                                    
MS. WOLLENBERG  offered her  understanding that  flowering plants                                                               
are ready for harvest.                                                                                                          
CHAIR MCGUIRE asked Ms. Yeung if she would answer the question.                                                                 
2:05:26 PM                                                                                                                    
RACHELLE  YEUNG, Legislative  Analyst, Marijuana  Policy Project,                                                               
agreed with the explanation.                                                                                                    
SENATOR MICCICHE asked  Ms. Yeung to discuss  weight variation of                                                               
marijuana plants.                                                                                                               
MS.  YEUNG advised  that there  can be  a wide  variation in  the                                                               
weight of marijuana plants so it  would be difficult to ascribe a                                                               
standard weight.  Some may  be the  size of  a small  house plant                                                               
while others may be taller than  a person. She concurred with Ms.                                                               
Wollenberg's   assessment  that   having   an  aggregate   weight                                                               
provision would  be more confusing  to the user  than restricting                                                               
the number of plants.                                                                                                           
2:06:45 PM                                                                                                                    
SENATOR  WIELECHOWSKI  asked if  she  agrees  that someone  could                                                               
commit a seriously  punishable felony simply because  he/she is a                                                               
very good gardener.                                                                                                             
MS. YEUNG replied that is why  Ballot Measure 2 allows adults who                                                               
grow  marijuana to  possess all  the product  that is  grown from                                                               
their plants.                                                                                                                   
SENATOR   WIELECHOWSKI  asked   about  the   distinction  between                                                               
possessing one ounce and four ounces.                                                                                           
MS. YEUNG  explained that  the distinction is  that a  person can                                                               
possess and  use the marijuana  from the plants he/she  has grown                                                               
on their  premises. The one  ounce designation is  for possession                                                               
outside that venue.                                                                                                             
SENATOR   COGHILL  suggested   deleting   the  aggregate   weight                                                               
provision  and returning  to  the  initiative language  regarding                                                               
number of plants.                                                                                                               
SENATOR MICCICHE expressed concern  with allowing four ounces. He                                                               
maintained  that  it  cannot  be  assumed  that  the  voters  who                                                               
supported the  initiative would also  support possession  of four                                                               
ounces of marijuana. He agreed with returning to one ounce.                                                                     
MS. WOLLENBERG suggested one way  to comport with voter intent is                                                               
to  reinsert  Sec.  17.38.020  from  the  initiative  and  exempt                                                               
anything made legal  in that section from  criminal penalties and                                                               
remove the aggregate weight provision in Sec. 17.38.260.                                                                        
She pointed out  that similar problems to those  she described in                                                               
Sec. 17.38.200(a)(1)  appear in  Sec 17.38.200(a)(2),  but (a)(2)                                                               
addresses manufacture  and delivery. She noted  that the delivery                                                               
provision in Sec. 17.38.210 is  also inconsistent, but it is more                                                               
consistent  than  the  higher  offense  in  Sec.  17.38.200.  She                                                               
reminded  the members  that  the initiative  allows  a person  to                                                               
possess marijuana with the intent to  deliver, as long as they do                                                               
not deliver more than one ounce to a person.                                                                                    
SENATOR  MICCICHE   questioned  the  inconsistency   between  the                                                               
delivery  provision  in  the  initiative  and  the  current  laws                                                               
regulating  alcohol. The  initiative  allows delivery  to a  home                                                               
whereas the point of sale for alcohol cannot be in a home.                                                                      
MS. WOLLENBERG deferred to Ms. Yeung.                                                                                           
MS. YEUNG said it appears that  the language in the initiative is                                                               
broad  enough to  allow delivery  services but  she couldn't  say                                                               
that with certainty. She offered to do follow up research.                                                                      
SENATOR  WIELECHOWSKI pointed  out another  inconsistency between                                                               
alcohol regulation  and the proposed  regulation of  marijuana. A                                                               
person can  buy as much  alcohol as  he/she likes from  a package                                                               
store whereas marijuana is limited to one ounce.                                                                                
SENATOR COGHILL said it seems that  .020 allows an adult to be in                                                               
the delivery  business without a  license, but he/she  could only                                                               
carry up to one ounce or six plants at a time.                                                                                  
2:17:01 PM                                                                                                                    
MS.  YEUNG   clarified  that   it  would   have  to   be  without                                                               
SENATOR  COGHILL  mused  that  a  person  might  charge  for  the                                                               
delivery service but not the marijuana.                                                                                         
MS.  YEUNG described  that  as a  sneaky  circumvention that  law                                                               
enforcement would  see through. She  noted that those  cases have                                                               
not been upheld in Colorado.                                                                                                    
SENATOR MICCICHE  asked her  to spend  more time  evaluating that                                                               
point because he didn't believe  that commercial delivery was the                                                               
intent of the initiative.                                                                                                       
MS. YEUNG agreed.                                                                                                               
MS.  WOLLENBERG  continued  to  comment  on  the  bill.  In  Sec.                                                               
17.38.220, she recommended specifying  the specific dollar amount                                                               
of  the fine.  As currently  written, the  reference to  AS 12.55                                                               
will bring  in the gamut  of penalties specified in  that statute                                                               
and  potentially   import  a  penalty  disproportionate   to  the                                                               
conduct. If it denotes criminality,  the person might be entitled                                                               
to counsel  and the  other rights attendant  to a  criminal case.                                                               
She  then  warned  that  Sec.  17.38.230  may  be  subject  to  a                                                               
challenge under Ravin  to the extent that it  criminalizes use by                                                               
an adult who is over 18 in his/her own home.                                                                                    
She said  she understands  that Sec.  17.38.270 will  be removed,                                                               
but  she  wanted to  note  that  is  problematic because  of  the                                                               
disproportionate  penalty  that  it  imposes and  the  fact  that                                                               
treatment can only  be done under the tutelage  of the Department                                                               
of  Corrections   (DOC).  Sec.   17.38.290  may  also   impose  a                                                               
disproportionate penalty  because a  person could  potentially be                                                               
subject to forfeiture of their car for committing a violation.                                                                  
MS. WOLLENBERG  said that  confidentiality of  certain marijuana-                                                               
related  conduct  by  those  under  age 18  came  up  during  the                                                               
previous hearing  and she would  encourage the committee  to make                                                               
those records  confidential. She also suggested  that the concern                                                               
that  there is  no exception  for  the use  of medical  marijuana                                                               
could be  addressed by  building an exception  into the  bail and                                                               
probation conditions  in Section  26. A  judge could  then exempt                                                               
someone  to provide  medical  marijuana for  somebody  who is  on                                                               
probation   or  parole   if  they   have   a  medical   marijuana                                                               
2:22:53 PM                                                                                                                    
SENATOR COGHILL asked  if the conduct would still  be a violation                                                               
and  remain   under  juvenile  jurisdiction   but  it   would  be                                                               
MS.  WOLLENBERG said  no; AS  47.12.030 on  page 80  specifically                                                               
exempts  from juvenile  jurisdiction most  of the  minor offenses                                                               
that were discussed  on Wednesday. She opined  that the committee                                                               
could  keep marijuana-related  violations by  minors in  juvenile                                                               
court  and  that  would  get   the  juvenile  probation  officers                                                               
involved  and  potentially  invoke  the  right  to  counsel.  The                                                               
committee could also  write a statute to keep the  records of the                                                               
violations confidential for minors adjudicated in adult court.                                                                  
SENATOR  WIELECHOWSKI  asked  if   she  has  concerns  about  the                                                               
definition  of  public  place and  concerns  about  allowing  the                                                               
police to order a blood and urine test.                                                                                         
MS. WOLLENBERG said she does  have concern about the provision on                                                               
page 69 that allows the police to  require a minor to submit to a                                                               
blood or urine  test to determine the marijuana  content in those                                                               
body  fluids. Adults  are treated  differently  because a  search                                                               
warrant would  be required.  With regard  to the  definition, she                                                               
suggested looking at whether the  definition of "public place" in                                                               
Title 11  could be amended to  allow marijuana use in  a place of                                                               
business that's a private function or party.

CYNTHIA  FRANKLIN, Director,  Alcoholic  Beverage Control  Board,                                                               
Department  of  Commerce,   Community  and  Economic  Development                                                               
(DCCED), opened her comments on  the bill focusing on Section 128                                                               
(page 74) relating to primacy.  She read the definition of "local

amended  to parallel  the  provision  in Title  4  that allows  a

for purposes of alcohol local  option. That would allow the local

advocated  for   tracking  the  change  to   include  established

in primacy.                                                                                                                     
SENATOR MICCICHE asked how the  local option provision in Title 4                                                               
was created initially.                                                                                                          
MS. FRANKLIN  explained that Title  4 provides local  options for                                                               
municipalities  and  a  separate  section of  local  options  for                                                               
established  villages.  It  provides   guidance  for  creating  a                                                               
perimeter and becoming an established  village for the purpose of                                                               
holding  local  option  elections.   By  contrast,  AS  17.38.110                                                               
provides  that  a  local  government,   which  is  defined  as  a                                                               
municipality,  may choose  a local  option through  an ordinance.                                                               
She  again advocated  for allowing  established villages  to hold                                                               
local option elections for marijuana.                                                                                           
SENATOR COGHILL said  he had an amendment to  address that point,                                                               
but he wasn't prepared to offer it yet.                                                                                         
MS.  FRANKLIN  said  the  next   area  of  concern  relates  Sec.                                                               
17.38.200  and Sec.  17.38.220.  She cautioned  to  make a  clear                                                               
differentiation  between  illegal  commercial  activities  versus                                                               
going outside  the bounds of  personal use so that  someone can't                                                               
claim that the lower level of offense applies to their conduct.                                                                 
MS. FRANKLIN told the committee that  the provisions in SB 30 for                                                               
minor possessing  or consuming marijuana  come close to  what the                                                               
Title 4  stakeholder workgroup worked towards  for an appropriate                                                               
penalty for  minors consuming alcohol. The  recommendation was to                                                               
strip  AS  04.16.050 of  the  current  requirements, which  moves                                                               
habitual  conduct from  a violation  to  a crime,  back into  the                                                               
violation category  with a mandatory  court appearance.  The fine                                                               
would  be $500  for  any  minor consuming,  but  the minor  would                                                               
receive  information  on  how  to reduce  the  fine  markedly  by                                                               
proactively seeking treatment or education relating to alcohol.                                                                 
SENATOR    COGHILL    asked    if   the    workgroup    discussed                                                               
MS. FRANKLIN replied  it was a major concern, but  a problem with                                                               
full confidentiality on  minor offenses is that  it would require                                                               
a  magistrate  to hold  an  individual  closed hearing  for  each                                                               
matter.  The workgroup  came up  with a  compromise procedure  to                                                               
have the minor's name appear in  CourtView while the case is open                                                               
and then disappear once the case is closed.                                                                                     
2:47:44 PM                                                                                                                    
SENATOR WIELECHOWSKI  asked if that  procedure would  entitle the                                                               
minor to a public defender or  if the court would issue an arrest                                                               
warrant if he/she didn't show up for court.                                                                                     
MS.  FRANKLIN explained  that the  minor offense  rules apply  to                                                               
conduct that  is designated  with a  fine that  is not  to exceed                                                               
$500.  Arrest warrants  for failure  to  appear are  specifically                                                               
prohibited, but the  court would enter a default  judgment and it                                                               
would  become a  criminally delinquent  fine that  is collectible                                                               
from the  PFD. The workgroup realized  that was one way  to bring                                                               
the matter to the attention of the parents.                                                                                     
SENATOR WIELECHOWSKI asked 1) if  the minors qualify for a public                                                               
defender, 2)  the number of cases,  3) how many are  likely to go                                                               
to trial, and 4) if more resources would be needed.                                                                             
MS.  FRANKLIN explained  that as  a  general rule  no defense  or                                                               
prosecution  time  is spent  on  minor  offenses. The  magistrate                                                               
makes a decision  and imposes a fine. She noted  that some of the                                                               
fines in Sec. 17.38 don't  align with the minor offense procedure                                                               
2:55:06 PM                                                                                                                    
SENATOR  WIELECHOWSKI  asked  if   this  will  result  in  police                                                               
officers spending  a lot  of time  sitting in  court in  order to                                                               
prosecute kids.                                                                                                                 
MS. FRANKLIN  said she  can't predict how  many offenses  will be                                                               
written up  and how many  individuals will  ask for a  trial. She                                                               
suspects there  will be an  initial spike  but that it  will drop                                                               
quickly thereafter.                                                                                                             
SENATOR MICCICHE  thanked Ms.  Franklin for her  work on  Title 4                                                               
and told  the committee  that a primary  reason he  is sponsoring                                                               
the   rewrite  is   to  get   more  reasonable   minor  consuming                                                               
regulations. He asked  how to dovetail the likely  outcome of the                                                               
Title 4 rewrite with SB 30 that isn't existing law.                                                                             
MS.  FRANKLIN  said she  appreciates  that  SB 30  addresses  the                                                               
conduct  in  the  form  of  a violation  without  a  lot  of  the                                                               
requirements   that  result   in  unintended   consequences.  She                                                               
suggested  looking carefully  at the  rehabilitation section  for                                                               
ways  to proactively  encourage rehabilitation  and have  a clear                                                               
intention about  what happens if  the youth doesn't adhere  to an                                                               
imposed requirement  in the treatment  plan. The Title  4 rewrite                                                               
does away  with the  "get treatment or  else" rubric  and instead                                                               
offers a carrot to significantly reduce a $500 fine.                                                                            
SENATOR  MICCICHE  told  the  members  he'd  share  the  proposed                                                               
language for AS 04.16.050.                                                                                                      
SENATOR   COGHILL  advocated   requiring   parental  consent   or                                                               
participation for medical marijuana. He  asked if that isn't what                                                               
happens  in  a licensed  establishment  when  a young  person  is                                                               
accompanied by a parent.                                                                                                        
MS.  FRANKLIN said  that's correct.  She explained  the different                                                               
types of licenses where minors can  go on a licensed premises and                                                               
acknowledged that smoking marijuana  doesn't accompany a meal the                                                               
way  a  glass of  wine  or  a beer  might.  She  noted that  both                                                               
recreational  marijuana  states  have avoided  having  places  to                                                               
publicly consume marijuana.  She said that might  be addressed in

MS.  FRANKLIN  turned  to  medical   marijuana  noting  that  she                                                               
provided  copies of  the document  that was  approved by  the ABC
