SPOKANE -- Hundreds of people showed up at the Spokane Convention Center to talk about marijuana.

Even though it is legal to smoke in Washington, the Liquor Control board is still trying to figure out how to regulate sales and production.

The board has less than one year to write the regulations for people who plan to grow package and sell marijuana.

Tuesday night, the board members talked about how they need community input on everything from how the state will test the quality of what is grown and sold, how they will keep it out of children’s hands, and how pot will be labeled so people who buy it will know what is in it.

The board will then craft rules that pertain to the licenses for producers, processors, and retailers.

Those who stood in front of the board Tuesday also talked about what they believe needs to be ironed out before they decide to buy and sell cannabis.

The board plans to start accepting producer licenses this summer.
