Liquor Control Board getting new name, more pot control
Seattle Times Staff
Big changes are coming to the state Liquor Control Board, including a name change.
The same law that will change the name July 24 to the Liquor and Cannabis Board also directed the agency to decide which unlicensed medical-marijuana shops and grow operations to legitimize by July 1, 2016.
The process will involve a merit system, The Olympian reported.
The agency assumes 825 unlicensed medical shops will apply for a license and that half will receive one.
