MOUNT VERNON -- Many of the people at Tuesday night's marijuana forum in Mount Vernon had a small-farm mentality.
The Skagit Valley Herald reported that many of the comments to the state Liquor Control Board recommended using small farmers instead of corporations to produce the drug. Others suggested being allowed to "grow your own" or being able to sell marijuana from farm stands.
One man who said cannabis shops would boost fast food sales lit up a joint at the end of his testimony.
The forum was the fifth in a series the liquor board is holding as it drafts regulations for the production and sale of marijuana made legal by voters in November.
More forums are planned in Tacoma, Yakima and Bremerton.
