Alaska’s interim cannabis chief gets appointment that is permanent

Glen Klinkhart, who has served as interim director of Alaska’s Alcohol and Marijuana Control Office (AMCO) since 2019, was given the job on a permanent basis.

Klinkhart’s installment as full-time AMCO chief was made Monday that is official by Mike Dunleavy.

The governor appointed Klinkhart as interim manager of this agency in 2019.

Klinkhart november, who’d offered as manager of medication policy for their state wellness division, replaced Erika McConnell, who was simply fired by the Marijuana Control Board.

In a statement, the governor stated Klinkhart “shares the administration’s view for the need certainly to eliminate the burden of unneeded laws and that people need to ensure sufficient oversight to guard the wellness, life, and security of Alaskans, and simultaneously make federal government more responsive, efficient, and company friendly.”(*)
