The legalization-of-marijuana movement continues with Alaska becoming the third state in the country to allow anyone 21 or older to legally smoke, grow and own small amounts of marijuana.
But similar to Colorado and Washington, recreational marijuana smokers are still supposed to get their high at home. Alaskans are not allowed to smoke in public or hold weed-friendly public events. Smoking in public could result in a $100 fine. (Video via YouTube / irisvideoproduction)
You can carry up to an ounce of weed on your person and not be fined, ticketed or arrested; whereas, before this legislation went into effect, carrying an ounce of recreational marijuana was illegal.
