"We are supposed to set quality standards, making sure consumer safety is involved in this," said Pat Kohler, administrative director for the WSLCB.
But Kohler admits there's no protections the state can offer for medical marijuana users, many whom are sick and may need the medicinal effects of marijuana the most.

Liquor Control Board Director Pat Kohler said the fourth in a series of forums throughout the state was designed, at the suggestion of Spokane City Councilman Jon Snyder, to engage those in the business early in the process before the state finalizes the rulemaking.
Kohler said the state needs to receive that word sometime this summer or growers will not have enough time to produce the first marijuana that will be available in state-sanctioned stores on Dec. 1.
