JUNEAU, Alaska — Alaska Gov. Mike Dunleavy has named a new member to the board that regulates legal marijuana in the state.

Dunleavy’s office announced Wednesday that Casey Dschaak of Dillingham was appointed to the Marijuana Control Board for a term starting March 1. Dunleavy re-appointed Christopher Jaime to the board. Jaime holds the public safety seat.

Both Jaime and Mark Springer had terms set to expire March 1, according to the Alcohol and Marijuana Control Office website. Springer is the board’s chairman and has held the board’s rural member seat. He is from Bethel.
