Bristol Bay Native Corporation Opposes Ballot Measure 2
On Friday, October 3, the Bristol Bay Native Corporation (BBNC) Board of Directors voted to oppose Ballot Measure 2, the Alaska Marijuana Legalization measure, which will appear on the November 4 ballot in Alaska.
BBNC took opposition to the ballot measure after considering its possible impacts to Bristol Bay communities and the region’s youth. According to a 2014 study in the New England Journal of Medicine, marijuana use is associated with altered brain development, adverse educational outcomes, higher unemployment and greater dependency on social services.
“Our board decided to oppose Ballot Measure 2 in the best interest of our shareholders and communities,” said BBNC board chairman Joseph Chythlook. “BBNC and its subsidiaries promote drug-free workplaces and healthy communities in Bristol Bay.”
If passed, Ballot Measure 2 would allow people age 21 and older to legally possess up to one ounce of marijuana and up to six plants. It would also make the manufacture, sale and possession of marijuana paraphernalia legal.
Bristol Bay Native Corporation (BBNC) is a responsible Alaska Native investment corporation dedicated to the mission of “Enriching Our Native Way of Life.” Established through the Alaska Native Claims Settlement Act of 1971 (ANCSA), BBNC works to ensure the continuation of the life and culture of its over 9,700 shareholders – the Eskimo, Indian and Aleut Natives of Southwest Alaska’s Bristol Bay region.
