450 attend marijuana forum in SpokaneFebruary 13, 2013 @ 5:13 am
SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) - About 450 people attended the Tuesday night forum in Spokane on drafting rules for the sale of recreational marijuana in Washington.
It was the fourth of a series of forums the Liquor Control Board is holding as it prepares to start selling the drug by the end of the year.
The Spokesman-Review reports ( http://bit.ly/YWT0Ch) the crowd was clearly supportive of marijuana sales, although some were concerned about corporate control and advertising.
Some objected to too much bureaucratic red tape in a state system of marijuana production, distribution and sale. Some said sheriffs should stand up to federal law enforcement if it conflicts with state law.
