COP on the Hill: Stories from the week of December 9, 2016

COP on the Hill:
Stories from the week of December 9, 2016

Intellectual Laziness: Given the vote in November, I have switched to my “COPS SAY LEGALIZE DRUGS” shirt, when I am away from Congress. There are several reasons why, not the least of which is I have nearly 100% conversations (off the shirt) of those who already agree. To remain sharp, I need to chat with those who disagree, to avoid becoming soft in the brain. ( this paragraph borrowed from Joe in the Morning)

This highlights the importance for reformers to chat with those who disagree with them. Staying in a Pro Legalize MJ environment may feel good, as all agree with you BUT it does not move the issue with the 40% of the voters who disagree with us.
