A marijuana industry representative has been chosen to fill the Alaska Marijuana Control Board’s vacant seat, according to a Wednesday release from Gov. Bill Walker’s office.

Nicholas Miller fills the fifth seat on the volunteer board after Walker removed Bruce Schulte from the board on July 29.

Miller is the chair of the Anchorage Cannabis Business Association, and is working toward opening the retail store AlaskaBuds LLC in Anchorage.
