WA Lege Day 29: Pot and booze on the agenda

OLYMPIA -- A heavy hearing day -- in more ways than one -- with no real floor action scheduled in either chamber.

The House Public Safety and Emergency Preparedness Committee has a hearing on a bill to legalize, regulate and tax marijuana. Don't expect any new arguments for or against, but a Legislative session isn't really a session without at least one propoal to legalize pot.

The Senate Labor, Commerce and Consumer Protection Committee has a hearing on a bill to allow craft distillers -- the hard liquor equivalent to boutique wineries -- to sell their wares at farmer's markets. The same committee has a hearing on former state Sen. Chris Marr's appointment to the State Liquor Control Board.
