Herbal Outfitters, Alaska’s First Recreational Marijuana Store Opens

Alaska’s first recreational marijuana store is finally here.

Herbal Outfitters, a marijuana store in Valdez, opened over the weekend. “I’ve been waiting 46 years for this to open!” Michael Holcombe, 63, a Valdez resident, told Alaska Dispatch News.”I’ll probably just go on my day, go home and smoke a bowl later,” Holcombe said.

“I really feel honored to be the first cannabis shop open in Alaska,” shop owner Rick Ballow said.

The store is selling edibles, concentrates and cannabis flowers, according to the Associated Press. Alaskans voted in recreational marijuana in 2014, and the state has been working on regulations, testing and more since. After the first batches of marijuana were tested recently, store owners began receiving their products. Only those who are over 21 years old can use recreational marijuana in Alaska.

Herbal Outfitters is getting its product from Greatland Ganja and Green Rush Gardens LLC in Alaska.
