    With product in stock, Anchorage's first pot shop officially opens for business

    The first customer at Arctic Herbery, which on Thursday became the first store in Anchorage to sell consumable marijuana, wasn’t planning to smoke the cannabis she bought.

    Anna Ercoli got to the shop around 8 a.m, she said. She was given a ticket to hold her place at the front of the line, so she didn’t have to wait for hours in the cold. And at noon, she bought 2.5 grams of the strain Afghani Kush, surrounded by a swarm of reporters in a quick transaction at the small shop on Arctic Boulevard.

    Ercoli planned to go home and turn the cannabis into a medicinal cream that she could use for knee pain. She wasn’t shy about sharing her past experience using marijuana salves.

    “I’m 80, so whatever goes, goes, I don’t care,” Ercoli laughed. The cream — first given to her by a friend — has helped her pain, she said, but smoking marijuana makes her sick.

    4. I love that our elderly

    can use it for medicine and pain relief.   I want to die free from pain pills and pharma.  Just my cannabis oil extract for pain and to make salve for the joints and a vape for sleepy time.

      Wake up, peeps, their kids go to Harvard and Yale; your kids go to Iraq & Afghanistan.
