U.S. Army Alaska today issued a commanding general policy letter prohibiting Alaska-based soldier attendance at marijuana, cannabis or hemp fairs, festivals, conventions and similar events. These types of events typically involve, but are not limited to, promoting the use of marijuana and disseminating information on the growing and processing of marijuana.

The policy, signed by Maj. Gen. Bryan Owens, notes that attendance at such events is inconsistent with military service and has the potential to adversely impact the health, welfare and good order and discipline for soldiers stationed here.

The policy also points out that the use of marijuana, while legal in Alaska, is still illegal in the military and is incompatible with military service. Soldiers who use, possess, manufacture, distribute or introduce marijuana or any compound or derivative of marijuana or any paraphernalia intended to facilitate the use, manufacture or refinement of marijuana onto any USARAK or joint military reservation in Alaska, violate the Uniform Code of Military Justice.

Soldiers who violate this policy may be subject to adverse administrative action and punishment under the UCMJ.
