Final state marijuana forum in Bremerton

BREMERTON -- About 200 people attended a marijuana forum Thursday night in Bremerton, the last of eight the Washington Liquor Control Board has held around the state as it prepares to draft licensing regulations.
The Kitsap Sun reported speakers asked for rules that would allow a marijuana cottage industry, rather than a few corporate producers and a black market.
Others expressed concerns about high taxes, the marijuana blood limit for driving and exposing children to drug use.
Under Initiative 502, approved by voters in November, the board is drafting rules for licensing marijuana producers, processors and retailers. Legal sales of marijuana for recreational use should start in December.
