VICTORIA —    The B-C government is expected to fill in some of the details today surrounding its plans for regulating and selling non-medical marijuana.

    Minister of Public Safety and Solicitor General Mike Farnworth is making an announcement this afternoon.

     B-C liquor stores have been lobbying to sell pot, along with alcohol -- saying liquor store staff are trained and ready to enforce age eligibility rules related to purchasing non-medical marijuana.

     The province has only said it wants to see legalized pot sold in a mixture of private and public outlets -- but those expectations will likely be clarified today.
