SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) — About 450 people attended the Tuesday night forum in Spokane on drafting rules for the sale of recreational marijuana in Washington.

It was the fourth of a series of forums the Liquor Control Board is holding as it prepares to start selling the drug by the end of the year.

The Spokesman-Review reports (http://bit.ly/YWT0Ch ) the crowd was clearly supportive of marijuana sales, although some were concerned about corporate control and advertising.

Some objected to too much bureaucratic red tape in a state system of marijuana production, distribution and sale. Some said sheriffs should stand up to federal law enforcement if it conflicts with state law.
