Pot forums coming

Washingtonians wanting to weigh-in on the state’s emerging rules on legal pot will have a chance at six upcoming forums.

As it prepares to oversee a new legal marijuana industry, the Washington Liquor Control Board announced Tuesday the sites for forums across the state. One in Seattle occurs Jan. 24, starting at 6 p.m. in City Hall’s Bertha Knight Landes Room. After an open house with board members and staff, and a brief overview of the board’s role in voter-approved Initiative 502, public testimony will be taken 7:15  p.m. to 10 p.m.

The other forums, which follow the same time schedule, will be held:

Jan. 22, WSLCB headquarters, room 201, 3000 Pacific Ave. SE, Olympa WA 98501;

Feb. 7, Clark College, Vancouver, Foster Auditorium, 1933 Fort Vancouver Way, Vancouver, WA 98663;

Feb. 12, Spokane City Hall, Council Chambers, 808 W. Spokane Falls Blvd., Spokane, WA 99201;

Feb. 19, Skagit Valley College, Mt. Vernon, theater, 2405 E. College Way, Mount Vernon, WA 98273;

Feb. 21, Yakima City Hall, Council Chambers, 129 N. Second St., Yakima, WA 98901.

“This is an opportunity for the public to meet the Board and staff involved in implementation, learn about our role in implementation, and to provide testimony,” said board Chair Sharon Foster in a statement.

Information about implementing I-502, including a fact sheet and frequently asked questions — are available at www.liq.wa.gov.
