Washington’s Liquor Control Board Postpones Announcement of Marijuana Consultants

 by lucy

For weeks, Washington’s Liquor Control Board has been reviewing proposals from potential consultants or consultant teams that are vying to help guide the state’s newly forming legal marijuana program.

The board had initially planned to announce the selected consultants on Tuesday, but have now postponed that decision.  They claim it is because they have been inundated with more proposals than they had anticipated.

112 proposals were received by the board, and 98 of them were deemed to meet the minimum requirements to be considered.  The proposals consist of a number of essays addressing potential consultants’ qualifications and understanding of issues ranging from marijuana cultivation and distribution to legal matters.

The board has now pushed the announcement back one week, to March 13th.  According to board spokesman Mikhail Carpenter, the board could postpone again, depending on a number of factors.
