Cultivation Laws Alaska

Marijuana, as per Alaska laws, is defined as stems, flowers, or leaves of the marijuana plant. The state of Alaska allowed cannabis cultivation in 1975 when the other states of America were fighting to make it disappear. So, marijuana is legal in Alaska. Earlier, the Alaskan right to privacy made the cultivation of 25 plants legal, and people could have 4 ounces in their possession.
