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.

Details on the hearings:

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

Aug. 7, Red Lion Hotel, Fir and Spruce Ballroom, 2300 Evergreen Park Drive S.W., Olympia, 9:30 am-noon.

Aug. 7, (that’s right, two hearings on the same day) Central Washington University, Student Union Ballroom B and C, 400 E. University Way, Ellensburg, 6-9 p.m.

Aug. 8, Spokane Convention Center, Ballroom 100A, 334 W. Spokane Falls Blvd., Spokane, 6-9 p.m.
