WASHINGTON: WSLCB Schedules Social Equity Virtual Meetings

WASHINGTON: The Liquor and Cannabis Board (LCB) wants to hear from people in communities of color regarding experiences and concerns when it comes to working within the cannabis system.

Please join LCB Member Ollie Garrett and members of the LCB’s executive leadership for a virtual community meeting.

In order to gain a broad perspective that represents the feelings and experiences about the current cannabis system held by those from communities of color, the LCB has scheduled three virtual meetings.

During these meetings, you will be encouraged to share your thoughts, and the LCB will update you on the upcoming work of the Task Force. The LCB will also provide clarification of the roles of the LCB, the Social Equity Task Force, and the Legislature and Governor when it comes to the Social Equity Task Force.

This is your opportunity to:

  • Speak to the LCB about your experience trying to obtain a cannabis license.
  • Learn about the Social Equity Task Force and new cannabis retail licenses.
