Tacoma, get ready to speak your mind on marijuana.

The Washington State Liquor Control Board has altered its schedule of public forums, adding Tacoma to the list.

The board has canceled a second forum in Olympia and will meet in Tacoma instead – on Feb. 21, from 6 p.m. until 10 p.m. at the Greater Tacoma Convention & Trade Center, 1500 Broadway, Room 315. Admission is free.

The latest schedule of public meetings has the board meeting in Spokane on Feb. 12; in Mount Vernon on Feb. 19; in Tacoma on the 21st; in Yakima on Feb. 28; and in Bremerton on March 7.

The agenda will be the same for each gathering, with an open house with the board and staff beginning at 6 p.m.; welcoming remarks at 7.; and overview of the board’s role in implementation of the marijuana initiative and an explanation of the timeline at 7:05; and public comment from 7:15 until 10 p.m.

Some venues have been changed given a large response from the public.
