SEATTLE (AP) - After nearly a year of research, planning and public hearings, Washington state is poised to approve the rules for its new legal marijuana industry.

The rules will dictate everything from the security at and size of licensed marijuana gardens, to how many pot stores can open in cities across the state.

The three-member Liquor Control Board is expected to vote to pass the rules Wednesday.

Washington and Colorado voted last year to legalize marijuana and allow its sale for recreational use at state-licensed stores. In Washington, supporters hope the sale of taxed pot to adults over 21 might bring the state tens or hundreds of millions of dollars. The proposed rules allow up to 334 pot stores to open in Washington.
Colorado approved its marijuana industry rules last month.
