5 years in, Washington considers overhaul of pot regulation

Gene Johnson, The Associated Press

Liquor and Cannabis Board Director Rick Garza detailed the proposals — part of what the board calls "Cannabis 2.0" — in an interview with The Associated Press. It's an effort to picture what the legal marijuana market will look like over the next five years, after spending the past five years largely regulating by reaction as the difficulties of building an industry from infancy absorbed the agency's attention.
