4 public hearings on pot rules set in August
The state Liquor Control Board will hold four public hearings in early August on its proposed rules for a legal recreational marijuana system.
The hearings — scheduled for Shoreline, Olympia, Ellensburg and Spokane — are required as part of the rulemaking process and allow for public testimony. The proposed rules can be downloaded here.
“This is a chance for those who are impacted by, or anticipate being involved in, the business of marijuana to testify for the record about the proposed rules,” said Sharon Foster, the board’s chair.

Aug. 6, Shoreline Community College, Main Dining Hall, 16101 Greenwood Ave. N., Shoreline, 6-9 p.m.
