COP on the Hill:

Stories from the week of April 20, 2018

We love our vets: Nothing, but nothing exemplifies the changes (the Senator’s position is evolving {rapidly}) regarding marijuana than what I experienced for two hours this week. During a hearing by the Veterans Committee in the House, one could not distinguish between Rs and Ds…it was one big love fest of let’s push and push to put God’s medicine into the hands of our veterans in specific and medical marijuana for all citizens in general. Wow!!

Make the Pitch: After Grover’s meeting I was able to have an extended chat with my White House contact regarding the President’s now very public support for the 10th A and marijuana. I asked that the WH pressure Speaker Ryan to allow a vote on our bills. I can’t tell you what the response was. Let’s just say, I am still going to work on Monday. On a professional note – it is gratifying to have a chance to ask the WH for something directly..this development only took me 9 years in the trenches.
