Alaska’s new governor makes state industry nervous with appointments & planning to propose repealing the state’s marijuana control board

Dunleavy has made new appointments to the five-member Marijuana Control Board while also planning to propose repealing its existence.

His appointment of Vivian Stiver, a marijuana critic, has riled industry members who have cast her as a prohibitionist. Stiver would replace Brandon Emmett, who is one of two industry representatives on the five-member board. State law allows up to two seats to go to industry representatives though one of the seats could go to a member of the general public.

The board began a three-day meeting Wednesday in Juneau, which was expected to be Emmett’s last meeting. Voters in 2014 approved legalizing the use of so-called recreational marijuana by those 21 and older.
