Work done in 2019 – 2020:

Congress – COP continued to focus on educating the Congress which resulted in steady progress toward our goal of applying the 10th Amendment to marijuana. In 2019 -2020 we maintained and expanded with enough votes in the House and the Senate to pass our 10th legislation but Republican leader ship blocked any vote.  Covid hit in March, Congress closed its door and all efforts involved Covid issues versus anything else through August 2020.

Nationally – COP spoke truth to power at two major political events. Though expensive, the audience at these events are the leaders who return home, infected with anti-prohibition ideas and talking points.

Internationally –   COP continues to promote to all Members of Congress and the White House the Swiss Heroin Treatment Program.  Additionally, a summary of the Portugal approach to Drug Decrim was distributed to all Members and the White House.  Howard Wooldridge had three productive meetings in Switzerland this fiscal year: one with the administrator of the Swiss program, another with the architect of the HAT Program and who is currently on the front lines of the issue.  The last meeting was with a retired Swiss police Sergeant who gave me information on how front-line officers feel about the Swiss approach to hard drugs.   NOTE:  only expenses incurred on those three days were charged to COP.
