WASHINGTON: This Wednesday evening the Inlander is hosting a panel discussion about the marijuana market taking form in Washington state. The three panelists are all experts in different areas of the industry:
Hilary Bricken, who we profiled in last year’s Work Issue, is an attorney known for specializing in the legal issues surrounding marijuana.
Matt Cohen, a well-known advocate in the medical marijuana movement, had his farm in California raided by the feds in 2011 and has since consulted with the Washington State Liquor Control Board on I-502 production issues.
Randy Simmons is the deputy director of the state’s Liquor Control Board, who’s been leading research teams as the state figures out how to set up and operate a legal marijuana market.
The forum will include questions from the audience, which is good — for every known fact about how recreational marijuana will work in Washington state, there are still dozens of questions about how it will all turn out.
