I-502 Marijuana Meeting Happening in Yakima Thursday

Posted: Updated:

YAKIMA, Wash.-- The Washington Liquor Control Board is looking for feedback on the new marijuana law enacted last year.

They've held forums all over the state, and now one is happening in Yakima this Thursday.  

It's the second-to-last forum the board planned to help them listen to citizen's concerns about Initiative 502.

The crowd at the Spokane meeting two weeks ago was supportive of the law, but concerned about the possibility of bureaucratic red tape clogging up distribution.

The board actually had to push the Yakima meeting back a week.

That's because the previous marijuana meetings drew many more people than expected, so they needed to find a bigger venue.

The Yakima event will now be in the Yakima Convention Center on Thursday. It's happening at 6 pm.

This is an open public meeting so you don't need to register. There's one final meeting after the Yakima event, that's happening at the Kitsap Conference Center in Bremerton on March 7th.
