The Greater Spokane Valley Chamber of Commerce is setting a Friday morning breakfast topic on the minds of a lot of people

Namely, how frienldy wil the Valley be to new businesses who will want to grown and legally sell marijuana?

The featured speaker is someone whose opinion on the legality of pot sales here is important, U.S. Attorney Mike Ormsby. He'll be the main person at the "Marijuana: Budding Business or Bad Idea" session starting at 7 a.m. Friday at Mirabeua Park Hotel.

The event is part of the Valley's Business Connections Breakfast.

Ormsby is likely to discuss the status of the federal laws with regard to the new Washington State law that resulted from voter approval of Initiative 502, which legalized and allows regulation of the sale of marijuana in the Evergreen State.

The breakfast starts at 6:30 a.m. Reservations may be made online or by calling (509)924-4994.  Admission to the Business Connections Breakfast is $25 per member and $35 per non-member.
