COP on the Hill: Stories from the week of April 21, 2023

Stories from the week of April 21, 2023


 Fun Week/Productive Week:

On 4/20 SAM (Sensible Approaches to Marijuana) held a conference at a theater in DC.  I paid the $250 to attend and I was all dressed up to go!  Sadly, the conference decided later to refund my money.  Discouraged? yes.  John Gilmore urged me to go to the venue and cause trouble, so I did.

  • Wearing my signature “COPS SAY LEGALIZE POT”…I stood at the front door, so just about all of the 80 attendees were able to read it.
  • When Kevin Sabet (Mr. SAM) popped thru the outer door, we made eye contact and I greeted him with a warm, “Morning Kevin!” He did not respond.. LOL
  • During my 90 minute adventure – some studiously avoided my greetings and scurried past to enter the building.
  • Near the end, I woman exited her taxi with a broad smile, read my shirt, scowled, and although I opened then nearest door for her and her suitcase on wheels, she chose to open the middle door by herself! LOL
  • At the end I entered the building and was confronted by the guy (as it turns out) who had googled me and then decided to refund my $250.. I confirmed I was personal non grata, exited and went to the Senate for 3 meetings with staffers.
  • No media whatsoever….shucks. and I did polish my buckle and wore my good hat!

Not Encouraged:  I met with Schumer’s people this week.  Suffice to say, I do not, did not smell compromise in the air, in order to put something on Biden’s desk.  Sadness.
