COP on the Hill:

Stories from the week of April 27, 2018

Elevator Man: ‘Joe’ made his I-am-running-for-Congress presentation at Grover’s this week. He was mightily impressive and also in a hurry. Before leaving the area, he did a TV interview. I hung out at the elevator and then held it, while he and his entourage joined him. I had my 45 seconds and then another 2 minutes as his handlers were trying to get him into a waiting SUV. He kept asking me questions. What could I do but answer them??!!

Land of Oz: Also at Grover’s was a producer for the Dr. Oz TV program. She focuses on mental health issues and was happy to hear about the Swiss HAT approach.

I delivered the 2018 updates to the Senate this week, finishing that task. I had a particularly fruitful chat with the CJ aide to a southern Senator…after 10 years of ‘hell no’, his aide stated the office is now all in for the 10th Amendment on marijuana.

Next week is family business in Michigan & then off to Old Europe for four weeks. The only COP business is a lunch with my Swiss HAT doctor/friend and a visit to the Bern visa office, to see if and American can move to Switzerland and receive their HAT treatment.
