Everybody, welcome Alaska into the select group of states that have legalized the use of recreational marijuana.

I have to add caveat to that.

Alaska’s voter initiative making marijuana legal takes effect today. The new law means people over age 21 can consume small amounts of pot. Here comes the small print. You can consume it, if you can find it. It’s still illegal to sell marijuana.

You can still give people marijuana, but you can’t buy it — or even barter for it,” Alaska Public Media’s Alexandra Gutierrez reports. “So, it’s a pretty legally awkward spot. That probably won’t stop people from acquiring it, though.”

Whata sticky, icky situation they have themselves in right now. Read more about the new law here
