Our intent is to make Alaska drug testing compliance and alcohol testing compliance as simple as possible. You don’t have to be a constitutional law scholar to conduct workplace drug testing in Alaska.
Alaska is an “open” state, which means there are no state statutes, regulations, or known court decisions that would limit your choices for implementing a drug or alcohol testing program. Testing is your choice however, there may be federal rules to consider that may restrict your program in other ways.
This overview is to introduce you to the nature and history of the state’s workplace drug testing rules and to provide a basic understanding of the compliance issues you may face when testing in this state.
This state has no known statutes restricting workplace drug or alcohol testing. Since there are no known state statutes, regulation, or court decisions in this state, you may be free, within the limits of applicable federal rules, to draft any policy you wish and to implement whatever testing program makes business sense to you. It is advisable to conduct testing according to the accepted standards of practice in the drug testing industry.
Q1. As an Alaska employer do I need to provide reasonable accommodation to a certified medical marijuana patient? Yes:
Answer is “No”.
Per Sec. 17.38.220
Nothing is intended to require an employer to permit or accommodate the use, consumption, possession, transfer, display, transportation, sale, or growing of marijuana in the workplace or to affect the ability of employers to have policies restricting the use of marijuana by employees.

Medical Use: Ballot Measure 8 was approved Nov. 3, 1998 by 58% of voters and became effective: Mar. 4, 1999. This law, entitled Medical Uses of Marijuana for Persons Suffering from Debilitating Medical Conditions Act, removed state-level criminal penalties for the use, possession, and cultivation of marijuana by individuals who possess written documentation from their physician advising that they "might benefit from the medical use of marijuana."
Personal Use: On November 4, 2014, Ballot entitled An Act to Tax and Regulate the Production, Sale, and Use of Marijuana, passed with 53.23% of the vote. The law made the use of marijuana legal for persons 21 years of age or older. It also allowed a person to possess, use, show, buy, transport, or grow set amounts of marijuana, with the growing subject to certain restrictions.
