COP on the Hill
Stories from the week of December 27, 2019 & Jan 3, 2020

I’ve seen your message for years: While having dinner at the bar at a restaurant, the woman next to me remarked she had seen my car and motorcycle for years with the message of Legalize MJ, heroin. Okay, why? And we had an excellent 10-minute chat. Marketing, marketing.

Where do I send the consulting bill?: the phone rang this week and the Republican candidate for the US House needed some help with marijuana questions. We had met at the Grover Norquist meeting. At the end of our 10 minutes, I asked him how to bill for the quarter hour of consultation. ! Just Kidding!

Worth Repeating:

Meeting in Bern, Switzerland in September with chief administrator of the Swiss heroin treatment program. Later, working lunch in Bern with a doctor and former director of a heroin clinic. The Swiss reconfirmed their willingness to send a team to the Congress, if invited.

George Will sent a note, thanking me for my advice on prohibition policy.

Continue to be Grover Norquist’s “go-to-guy” for drug war issues.
