Class Schedule for "Responsible Alcohol and Tobacco Sales"
Washington State Liquor and Cannabis Board (WSLCB) enforcement officers regularly conduct "Responsible Alcohol and Tobacco Sales" classes at locations across the state.
Public Safety Laws
Public safety violations are considered the most serious as they present a direct threat to public safety. Public safety liquor laws fall into the following categories: violations involving minors; the sale or service of alcohol to apparently intoxicated persons; conduct violations; lewd conduct; and refusing to allow inspection and/or obstructing a law enforcement officer from performing their official duties.
Selling alcohol responsibly should be the top priority for liquor-licensed businesses. Owners, managers and employees all have a role in keeping alcohol out of the hands of minors and those who are apparently intoxicated.
