The forum will be moderated by KCTS 9’s Enrique Cerna and the questions will come from the Seattle Weekly, the television station, and from readers like you.

Tickets for the event went extremely quickly, and there are no more seats available to watch the forum live.

But the discussion will be recorded, and video from it will be posted on Toke of the Town when it is available.

You can follow the discussion tomorrow night on Twitter (#TokeSignals) and on Facebook.
