First potential commercial marijuana testing facility in Juneau submits permit application

    Southeast Alaska Laboratories LLC has filed an application for a permit, and Glacier Analytics is expected to follow suit next week.

    One company has applied for a permit to operating a marijuana testing facility in Juneau and another is in the process of doing the same thing.

    According to the Juneau Empire, Southeast Alaska Laboratories LLC has filed its application for a permit. Glacier Analytics is expected to follow suit next week.

    Mayor Ken Koelsch reacted to the news while a guest on Action Line Friday, stating testing facilities are necessary for anything else to happen.

    The Planning Commission has already approved permits for the cultivation, manufacturing and sale of marijuana.  The testing was the last critical element, according to the mayor.
