COP on the Hill: Stories from the week of April 10, 2015


Stories from the week of April 10, 2015

Appreciation: After asking the aide to have the Republican Member re-visit the 10th Amendment re: marijuana policy, the aide said softly, “Thanks for what you are doing.” We can rest assured that his voice will bring up the 10th in staff chats on marijuana policy.

Freedom isn’t free:   http://www.standard-journal.com/opinion/article_c0c5cf08-e003-11e4-b35d-bf8a1abef4cf.html — Second print article from my trip to central PA.

New Technology: On Thursday evening I did my first presentation via Skype to a group of college students in Florida. It was a bit strange to not see the audience. The organizer was pleased and that is what counts.

From one of contacts in Vienna:

“It was a pleasure to meet you, as well; your passion was a welcome ingredient in the room during our discussions in Vienna.

Indeed, UNDP intends to be quite engaged in the UNGASS 2016 on drug policy, and I look forward to seeing you in NYC then.  In the meantime, I will share with you our policy paper on the impacts of drug control policy on human development, when it is finalized.”
