Remedy Shoppe in Skagway was the first dispensary to receive its operating license in Alaska. The license was issued on October 4, 2016 to owner Tara Bass. The issue at the time was Remedy Shoppe had no cultivation license and thus, no product to sell. Product was received and the dispensary officially opened for business on January 20, 2017. Skagway resident Jacob Cotton was the very first customer.
