What would #CPAC be like without the cowboy guy with the legalize drugs T-shirt?

CPAC 2017:

The craziness began Wednesday night with a reception, speeches by VP Pence (Thursday) and P Trump on Friday and closed with a speech/history lesson/snoozer by Sheriff Clarke of Wisconsin on Saturday.

Highlights: I bumped into a gentleman I met 8 years ago as a legislative assistant. He had quickly moved up the ranks and is now an advisor to Prez. Trump. I congratulated him on his position, thrilled that this professional friend of mine (dozens of chats over the years) now hangs his hat at the WH 8-5. More importantly, he allowed 3 minutes me to point out the reasons Trump should NOT go after Colorado.

16 media interviews on Thursday, 7 on Friday and none on Saturday. Add to that to many dozens of young CPACers wanting fotos of the cowboy and the shirt. My best numbers ever.

Here are some early samples of published media articles. More stuff on my Twitter feed @cannabiscop..like 10 seconds with Sean Hannity.
