The 10 Best Dispensaries in Alaska

A lot of people were surprised when Alaska voted to legalize marijuana, thinking that it’s not as typically liberal as its West Coast counterparts like California and Oregon. But anyone who knows Alaskans personally gets it. Alaska is a state full of strong individualists who want to be trusted to make their own decisions for themselves, and that includes the decision to smoke weed.

President Trump's 2020 budget request includes a loophole that would let Washington, DC finally open up dispensaries for recreational cannabis. Although DC voters passed a ballot initiative to legalize recreational cannabis back in 2014, Congress has used its power over the nation's capital to prevent it from selling cannabis for recreational use. Right now, local dispensaries can only sell medical marijuana to registered patients thanks to Congress, which controls spending in the District of Columbia.
