JUNEAU, Alaska (AP) - A House committee has moved a bill that would limit households of two or more adults to 12 marijuana plants.

The House Community and Regional Affairs Committee on Tuesday moved its bill enabling communities to set marijuana regulations.

The bill included a 12-plant limit for households with two or more adults 21 years or older, despite a legal memo stating such a restriction might be unconstitutional. The bill also defined public places where marijuana consumption is prohibited.

Fairbanks North Star Borough Mayor Luke Hopkins asked that municipalities have the authority to set their own limits. Committee members indicated that they wanted communities to have that power.

Rachelle Yeung, from the Marijuana Policy Project, said advocates would prefer a higher limit for larger households, such as 18 plants for three adults.
