Destructive Government

The Northern Lights Hookah Lounge has been attacked by the State of Alaska through the office of Cynthia Franklin, head of the alcohol Control Board.

Cynthia issued a Cease and Desist letter to Northern Heights on behalf of the alcohol Control Board the day before the newly appointed Marijuana Control Board was to meet, which they have, and during that meeting they effectively nullified the Cease and Desist letter of the ACB, unfortunately for Northern Heights and their clients the ACB did not issue a recall letter on the aforementioned legal sledge hammer.

A news reporter, Northshore manager Audry and NH manager Sarah discuss the Cease & Desist letter.

The owner of the Northshore Resort has no other option then to comply with the legally binding order of the ACB to protect their interests, so Cynthia Franklin forced the closing of a new business only 30 days after opening their doors on what was quite likely to be their busiest weekend thus far. I think this sort of strong arming is verging on mobster style actions.

If you can’t beat them beat their landlords and issue explicit threats that you know full well will be rescinded only hours later but that will still inflict serious financial hardship on the business.

I stopped in at the Northshore and had a delightful Moose’s Drool before heading down to enjoy some cannabis and conversation. I saw a couple folks I already knew, made a couple new friends and was intending to head back upstairs for dinner on the deck around 6. But on being informed that the lounge would have to close yet again I decided just to come home and make my own dinner. So it is safe to say that the Northshore ale House is also loosing revenue from the patrons of the lounge downstairs that will not be eating and drinking upstairs this weekend.

shishsesh6In a proper World we would have a place like this to meet with friends, in a proper World an immediate letter would be sent from the ACB on Cynthia Franklin’s letterhead rescinding the Cease & Desist letter, in a proper World those suffering financial loss would be properly compensated. But we all know this World just ain’t proper, don’t we?

North West Cannabis Classic

OK, just to be clear I’m not writing this article just because my comments were deleted off of their facebook page rather than responding to them, but it did move up the desire to write it considerably.

First off I think we should look up the definition of “classic”.

classic

adjective clas·sic \ˈkla-sik\
  • used to say that something has come to be considered one of the best of its kind
  • used to say that something is an example of excellence
  • used to describe something that has been popular for a long time

The NW Cannabis Classic, as far as I can determine is none of the above. So it should just be called the NW Cannabis Related Carpet Bagger Event.

“Carpet bagger?” I can hear some of you asking.

car·pet·bag·ger
ˈkärpətˌbaɡər/noun, derogatory
noun: carpetbagger; plural noun: carpetbaggers; noun: carpet-bagger; plural noun: carpet-baggers
  • a political candidate who seeks election in an area where they have no local connections.
  • historical (in the US) a person from the northern states who went to the South after the Civil War to profit from the Reconstruction.
  • a person perceived as an unscrupulous opportunist.

As near as I can tell the NW Cannabis Classic does fit at least one of these definitions. Now, mind you I am not inferring that they are without scruples, I am saying that they are out of state opportunists trying to take your money and run.

We fought this war, we won this war, and now the Bra’s from the Island want to take a piece of the spoils of war.

ANCHORAGE, ALASKA is the first stop of the NW Cannabis Classic, a multi-city cannabis competition, trade fair and educational event.

This 3-day event offers a can’t miss experience for visitors and vendors alike, complete with innovative product demos, 100+ vibrant vendors, informative seminars, live music, private outdoor medicating area (for 21+), lucrative networking opportunities, and undeniable excitement – it’s all happening here!”

Yep, it’s all happening here and the money is all going there…and by there I mean Hawaii.

Of course we all know where anchorage stands on using marijuana to medicate at an event such as this. I can just imagine the smoking lounge where every other person is passing because they can’t inhale while they are on duty.  The law is the law and just because you want the law to go away does not mean they do. It usually means they come to see WHY you want them to go away.

I can’t see anyone pulling off a serious Cannabis Event in the Anchorauga area until at least the laws are in place to protect the consumer of cannabis.

I am hoping that perhaps the event organizers will install metal detectors to watch for guns, badges, cameras etc., but I seriously doubt they will. I do expect that a considerable number of ticket sales will be to various State and Federal agencies curious about what will be going on behind their closed doors, and I expect that will be the norm for at least a few years.

As my comments, innocent as they were, were deleted from their Fb page I’ll just leave them here and open the door for them to respond here should they so desire. But as they have never reached out to one of the oldest and most active cannabis activists in the State about their event I doubt they will bother now.
