Head of Alaska's Alcohol and Marijuana Control Office Resigning

Alaska's voters legalized commercial marijuana in November 2015; the Marijuana Control Board was created in the summer of 2015.

Cynthia Franklin, the director of Alaska's Alcohol and Marijuana Control Office who has overseen the rollout of legal pot in the state, is resigning, Alaska Dispatch Publishing's Laurel Andrews reported last week, writing that Franklin announced her resignation to members of the Alcohol and Marijuana control boards on Dec. 7 Wednesday afternoon in an email forwarded to Alaska Dispatch News.

Franklin wrote that her final day as director will be Jan. 6, and that she will become an assistant attorney general in the Consumer Protection Unit.

There are two state boards involved: the Marijuana Control Board, which was established as a regulatory and quasi-judicial agency for the control of the cultivation, manufacture and sale of marijuana in the state, and the Alcoholic Beverage Control Board, established as a regulatory and quasi-judicial agency for control of the manufacture, barter, possession, and sale of alcoholic beverages in the state.
