Legal pot hearing in Spokane Oct. 9

The state agency developing rules for legal recreational marijuana in Washington will hold a hearing in Spokane on Oct. 9. Another hearing will be in Seattle Oct. 8.

The Washington State Liquor Control Board said Friday the hearing will start at 6 p.m. at the Convention Center, and go for up to three hours.

Earlier this week the board set limits on the number of retail stores that would be allowed in each of the state’s 39 counties, the number of licenses any person could hold and the area that a licensed grower could use. It expects to begin accepting license applications in November and licenses awarded in early 2014. Stores might be open by June 1.

Details of the board's latest changes in rules can be found here.
