According to studies performed by the Office of Applied Studies, National Survey on Drug Use and Health, 2003 and 2004, the total number of people ages 12 and older in the state of Alaska who used marijuana in the past year is 83,000. Of the 83,000, 13,000 were between the ages of 12 and 17. 24,000 past year marijuana users were of ages 18 to 25 and 46,000 were 26 and older. Total use of marijuana in the past month, according to the same survey, by people ages 12 and older is 49,000. 8,000 were ages 12 to 17, 15,000 were 18-25 and 26,000 were age 26 or older.
Marijuana use in Alaska was once legal and constitutionally protected to be used in the privacy of your own home which was passed in 1975 by the Alaskan Supreme Court. That all changed in 2006 when the state of Alaska made it a criminal possession if someone was found with a small amount. Alaska is now trying to make it legal for adults 21 and over to have in possession up to 1-ounce but it will not be allowed in public. Alaska also has The Healing Center Medical Clinic (THCMC) that offers medical marijuana cards for those who qualify by a doctor to help with many illnesses such as HIV, anorexia, glaucoma, seizure disorders, cerebral palsy and more.
Marijuana rehab and treatment centers in Alaska say that in order to be successful at recovery that you must admit you have a disease but at a non-12 step program they teach you that you don't have a disease and you can be substance free.
When in need of Marijuana help you might find that most options available to you in Alaska are basically all the same. All Marijuana treatment centers and rehabs seem to offer a solution that is tied to an endless life filled with meetings and recovery.
