COP on the Hill:

Stories from the week of December 8, 2017

Unfortunate and Necessary: After three years of using the LEAP business card on the Hill, I decided the mission statement and style of COP and LEAP had become too incompatible. As you know, COP is narrowly focused at the federal level to end drug prohibition, starting with marijuana. LEAP changed their name and focus in January. We parted on friendly terms.

As I am one of the five founders of LEAP, I hope my baby does well with its new direction. LEAP is focusing on the 50 state legislatures and ballot initiatives.

Personal – I am taking the next two weeks off – on a boat to China or the Caribbean…Karen knows… During that time I am writing an article for the NRA, at their request, on the clash between the 2nd Amendment and Marijuana.

This week’s stats:

2674 Presentations to Congressional staffers… 17 this week
