Alaska’s top cannabis regulator is resigning

Alaska’s top cannabis official, Cynthia Franklin, is stepping down from her post to take another job in the state government.

Franklin said Jan. 6 will be her last day as director of Alaska’s Alcohol & Marijuana Control office (AMCO), according to Alaska Public Media.

In 2014, she was appointed head of the Alcoholic Beverages Control Board, which morphed into the AMCO after Alaskans passed a recreational cannabis referendum on Nov. 4 of that year.

Franklin, who has been an attorney since 1989, will next serve as assistant attorney general for the Consumer Protection Unit with Alaska’s Department of Law.
