Below find a rough transcript of Ask a Pol’s exclusive interview with Sen. Markwayne Mullin (R-OK), slightly edited for clarity.

TRANSCRIPT: Sen. Markwayne Mullin

Matt Laslo: “What do you make of DEA moving on marijuana to reclassify it?”

Markwayne Mullin: “I haven’t seen it.”

ML: “You haven’t seen it yet?”

MM: “That in Oklahoma?”

ML: “No, this was DEA…”

MM: “Oh, it is?”

ML: “Statewide — or, pardon me, nationwide, which…”

Pardon the confusion. Laslo used to cover Congress for local Oklahoma NPR station’s KGOU and KOSU…

Every bit helps!

MM: “Haven’t seen it.”

ML: “Yeah. They’re just…”

MM: “What are they gonna do?”

ML: “They’re gonna reclassify it from Schedule I down to, like, Schedule III or something.”

MM: “I’m not a fan of it.”

ML: “Yeah? Have a good one, sir.”
