How old do I have to be to consume marijuana?
You must be 21 years old to use marijuana products. It is illegal to give marijuana to minors.
Can I smoke or consume cannabis while in the park with my friends?
Not in Alaska. Again, the law bans all public use of any marijuana, not just smoking. This means it is illegal to use marijuana in schools, amusement venues, businesses, parks, playgrounds, sidewalks, or roads, just to name a few. And since marijuana is still illegal federally, you cannot use it on federal land — not in national parks and national forests.
So where can I use marijuana?
Private property is your best bet, though some property owners or homeowners associations may have policies that prohibit marijuana use. Check your local laws and with hotel owners and landlords prior to consuming marijuana.
What about marijuana possession for teens and young adults under age 21?
It is illegal for anyone under the age of 21 to possess marijuana.

No. It is illegal to leave Alaska with any marijuana products.
