Assembly Bans Spice and Approves Crackers

This week in two votes, the Anchorage Assembly banned a currently legal substance and turned an illegal activity into a hours-long lawful one.

On Tuesday, the Anchorage Assembly unanimously backed ban cannabinoids, a synthetic marajuana with highly unpredictable and often dangerous effects, but which is now legally sold in the city. And by a 7  -4 vote, members approved lifting the municipality’s ban on personal fireworks for a three and half hour period on New Year’s. The first ordinance enjoys Mayor Dan Sullivan’s approval, the latter could receive a veto.
