TRANSCRIPT: Sen. Patty Murray

SCENE: Sen. Murray — and the large entourage of security that always accompanies the Senate President Pro Tempore — is rushing through the basement of the Capitol when Ask a Pol’s Matt Laslo catches up to her.

Matt Laslo: “Hey, how are you, ma'am? Curious if you have thoughts on the DEA moving to reschedule marijuana.”

Patty Murray: “What about it?”

ML: “The DEA moving to reschedule on their own.”

PM: “Yeah, what are you asking me?”

ML: “Any thoughts on it? Do you think that's good? Does it take away leverage on getting to clemency?”

PM: “No, I think it's good.”

ML: “Yeah? Where are you on the SAFER Banking Act?”

PM: “I've been supportive of that forever.”

ML: “Supportive? Thank you, ma'am.”
