The November 5, 2015, presentation “Washington State Liquor Control Board – Marijuana Update” featured Sgt. Jackie (Jacquelyne) Eliason and Lt. Maureen Wheeler, Washington State Liquor and Cannabis Board, with Steve as MC. The dynamic situation involving Washington State’s overseeing of marijuana sales was expertly outlined, and the audience had plenty of time to make comments and pose questions.
