Agency developing pot rules appoints new director

OLYMPIA -- The agency tasked with developing a regulated marijuana system in Washington state has chosen a new director.
The Washington State Liquor Control Board announced Tuesday that it has selected Rick Garza to lead the agency's day-to-day operations. Garza currently serves as the deputy director.
Current director Pat Kohler is leaving the job in June after Gov. Jay Inslee appointed her to lead the state Department of Licensing. Inslee said Garza is a creative leader and that he has full confidence in his ability to lead the agency at this important time.
The liquor control board is currently developing rules for a legal marijuana industry involving how plants will be grown, how marijuana products will be tested for strength and quality, and how many retail stores will be allowed.
