The public is invited to four meetings this month, about where marijuana-related businesses should be located in Clark County, as allowed by Initiative 502.

Since Washington voters legalized recreational marijuana last November, the Washington State Liquor Board has developed licensing regulations for businesses that will grow, process and sell pot and related products. Those regulations took effect November 16th.

Now the county has to determine where those facilities will be allowed to locate, starting in February. State regulations already prohibit such facilites within a thousand feet of schools, parks, playgrounds, recreation facilties, libraries and game arcades.

The zoning meetings run from 5-6:30 pm and are open to the public:

- Monday, November 18, in Ridgefield: Clark County Fire & Rescue Station 21, at 911 N. 65th Avenue.

- Wednesday, November 20, in Hockinson: Clark County Fire District 3, 11718 NE 159th Street.

- Monday, November 25, in Vancouver: Public Service Center, 1300 Franklin Street.

- Tuesday, November 26, in Camas: Camas Public Library, 625 NE 4th Avenue.
