Despite medical marijuana's legality in Alaska going back nearly two decades, many potential patients and caregivers are still curious what the qualifying conditions are for enrolling in Alaska's medical marijuana program. 



Below are the medical conditions that would qualify a patient for enrolling in Alaska's medical marijuana program.




Where Can I Buy Medical Marijuana in Alaska?


There are no state-licensed medical marijuana dispensaries in Alaska. With that said, there are numerous state-licensed recreational marijuana dispensaries in Alaska that patients can procure their medicine from. Additionally, at-home cannabis cultivation is legal in Alaska, capped at 6 plants maximum (only 3 can be mature plants at any given time).


How Much Can I Legally Possess?


For both recreational and medical marijuana in Alaska, possession is capped at 1 ounce. Possession of between 1 and 4 ounces of marijuana is misdemeanor and will lead to big fines and potential jail time. With 4 or more ounces of weed, you're looking at a hefty felony charge.
