COP on the Hill: Stories from the week of April 22 & 29, 2016

COP on the Hill

Stories from the week of April 22 & 29, 2016

BTW: Sometimes we do things so often, we forget how important they are..just know that every week at the Norquist brunch, I meet with citizens running for Congress. I always manage a 2 minute chat & ask for their commitment to the 10th amendment. A solid majority of the time they are on board with the 10th.

Road Trip: Jim Rubens of New Hampshire is running for the US Senate. He flew me up to Manchester for a press conference, where he announced his position on drug policy. It was nice to be asked. Rick van Wickler, LEAP’s Board President also spoke…both of us as private citizens. I flew up and back in one day.

4/20: I presented to about 40 DC-based, marijuana activists, saying give yourselves a hand for achieving 90% of your goals (they still don’t have MJ stores, due to Congressional opposition. I urged them to put on their Sunday best from now on to achieve the final goals. I asked and about 75% thought all drugs should be legalized.
