Alcohol & Marijuana Control Office

Beginning May 23, 2018, Marijuana Handler Permit applicants will be required to submit their Alaska Criminal Justice Information (a criminal history background check) as part of their handler permit application. Information on how to obtain this can be found here: https://dps.alaska.gov/Statewide/R-I/Background/WalkIn.

Applicants with disqualifying criminal histories are not eligible for a marijuana handler permit. See the adopted regulation at https://aws.state.ak.us/OnlinePublicNotices/Notices/Attachment.aspx?id=112293 for information on disqualifying criminal history.

These changes are due to new regulations at 3 AAC 306.700(f) and 3 AAC 306.812, approved by the Marijuana Control Board and signed by the Lt. Governor, which become effective on May 23, 2018.
