Anchorage marijuana business passes 'smell test'

By  | 

ANCHORAGE (KTUU) - Cannabaska's cultivation operation Alaska Sense LLC passed the 'smell test' of Anchorage Code Enforcement during an inspection early Wednesday morning. This comes just over a month after the businesses were fined thousands of dollars for improperly disposing of marijuana waste in February.

"We try to be very specific that it is coming from that facility, it is marijuana, and we’ve been in a number of facilities so we know what marijuana smells like. We're not confusing it for the old burnt rope thing of the past, we try to be very specific and careful when we do those inspections," said Rich Fern, Lead Enforcement Officer for Anchorage Code Enforcement.

If Cannabaska would have failed the odor inspection today it would have been subject to a fine of up to $250.

Friday the Anchorage Assembly will take up the company's city- issued conditional use permit, and whether it should be renewed.
