JUNEAU, Alaska (AP) — One of the industry representatives on the board that regulates Alaska’s legal marijuana industry says he’s being replaced.
Brandon Emmett says Gov. Mike Dunleavy’s boards and commissions director told him Dunleavy was going “in another direction” and Emmett’s service was no longer needed.
An email seeking comment was sent to a Dunleavy spokesman.
The administration previously removed from the board Jeff Ankerfelt, who held the public safety seat.
