Gibson v. State

In Gibson v. State, 719 P.2d 687 (Alaska App. 1986) the Court held that in determining the weight of processed marijuana, all that was necessary to convict under the statute was "that the substance delivered contains marijuana, and that the aggregate weight of the substance meets the statutory requirement." The Court also held in Gibson, that the "commonly used form" language from AS 11.71.080 "refers to the method of calculating the aggregate weight of live marijuana plants."
