SEATTLE (AP) -- Hundreds attended the latest state Liquor Control Board forum Thursday night in Seattle to talk about how marijuana will be legally sold in Washington.

Board member Brian Smith says marijuana-only stores will likely be regulated and operated like the old state-operated liquor stores.

KOMO reports (http://bit.ly/SLzgSp ) prices are expected around $12 to $15 a gram.

More public forums are scheduled Feb. 7 in Vancouver, Feb. 12 in Spokane, Feb. 19 in Mount Vernon and Feb. 21 in Yakima.

The state hopes to have a system in place for marijuana sales by December.
