    Marijuana milestone: Alaska's first pot shop opens to the public in Valdez

    VALDEZ — Nearly two years after Alaskans voted to legalize commercial cannabis, the first retail marijuana store opened to the public Saturday.

    Herbal Outfitters opened its doors at noon, on a rainy day in this coastal community.

    "I've been waiting 46 years for this to open!" said Michael Holcombe, 63, a Valdez resident.

    Holcombe was the store's first customer, surrounded by media, while the rest of the customers waited outside. He perused the 10 strains available, smelling the buds and asking about products on the shelves.

    He walked out with five different strains: 2 grams of G-13 crossed with Cheese, 1 gram of Jack the Ripper, 1 gram of Bubba Kush, 1 gram of Blue Dream and 2 grams of Deep Sleep, for $145.65.

    Holcombe is retired, and said he didn't have any big plans after he makes his purchase.

    "I'll probably just go on my day, go home and smoke a bowl later," Holcombe said.

    I'm sure Charlo Greene is ecstatic now that Alaska quit dragging ass to come up with the regulations to put in place two years after she lead the initiative for marijuana reform. Oh, wait. Probably not. She's facing 54 yrs. in jail.
    Theye have refused their Assent to Laws, the most wholesome and necessary for the public good.

    Theye have erected a multitude of New Offices, and sent hither swarms of Officers to harass our people and eat out their substance.

    Theye kept among us, in times of peace, Standing Armies

    Theye have combined with others to subject us to a jurisdiction foreign to our constitution,

    For protecting them, by a mock Trial from punishment for any Murders which they should commit on the Inhabitants of these States:

    For cutting off our Trade with parts of the world:

    For imposing Taxes on us without our Consent:

    For depriving us in many cases, of the benefit of Trial by Jury:

    Theye plundered and destroyed the lives of our people.

    Theye are at this time transporting Armies of Mercenaries to compleat the works of death, desolation, and tyranny, already begun with circumstances of Cruelty & Perfidy scarcely paralleled in the most barbarous ages, and totally unworthy of a civilized nation.

    It's the first store open in the state. Probably they jacked the prices way up to take advantage of the long lines of customers. I'm guessing will come down as more stores open.
