A Homer-based marijuana cultivation business that was caught growing several plants prior to approval by the state Marijuana Control Board will now be allowed to legally operate.

The control board denied Alaska Loven It’s standard cultivation permit application in January after co-owner Dan Coglianese was found growing 24 immature marijuana plants prior to approval.

A local bar and restaurant may lose its liquor license because it owes thousands of dollars in delinquent property and sales taxes.

The Alcohol & Marijuana Control Office notified the city last month that Young’s Downtown Restaurant & Inn applied to renew its liquor license. According to the control office, Ock Kyung Lee is the current business license holder.

The Kenai Peninsula Borough’s finance department sent a letter later that month to let the city know that Lee owes about $23,000 in back taxes to the city and borough.
