Haines, Alaska (KINY) The mailing of this week's Chilkat Valley News was halted by the US Postal Service due to an advertisement for a small marijuana business.
The Post office refused shipment of the paper.
Reporter Jenny-Marie Stryker said the paper didn't realize it would be problematic. Marijuana might be legal in Haines and Alaska but it is not legal according to the federal government.
Stryker said the ad was cut from papers bound for out of town subscribers. Residents of Haines were asked to come by the newspaper office and pickup the paper this week.
