Liquor Control Board Revises Public Hearing Schedule For I-502

I-502-implementation thumbOLYMPIA – The Washington State Liquor Control Board announced that they will hold five public hearings across Washington, instead of the initial four scheduled hearings, regarding the proposed rules for Initiative 502 implementation. The hearings are a required part of the rulemaking process and provide an opportunity for stakeholders to offer public testimony on the proposed rules for I-502.

As part of the revised schedule, the Shoreline Community College hearing has been moved to Seattle Center and an additional hearing has been scheduled in Everett on the same day.

“Everything we’ve done regarding I-502 has drawn a crowd and we want to accommodate everyone. Having four hearings across the state allows us to do that,” said Board Chair Sharon Foster. “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.”
