COP on the Hill: Stories from the week of February 7, 2014

Stories from the week of February 7, 2014
Wish I could do this more often: Tuesday evening the Texas State Society had their annual soirée – reception in the Rayburn Bldg. Maybe I was able to have one minute chats with four (4) Congressmen and one Senator (Cornyn) because I was the only person in the room of 200 with a cowboy hat. Picture this. Shake hands with the Senator and…
‘Senator. A pleasure. Our governor Perry last week announced his support for employing the 10th Amendment to marijuana policy. Are you ready to let TEXAS RUN TEXAS?’
His answer was about the same as the other three Republican House Members…’mumble, not time, must take a look, mumble, mumble.’ The one Democratic Member and I had an excellent three minute chat.
A star one day?: I spent half of Thursday and all day Friday helping two guys from Denmark who are making a documentary of lobbying/advocating for a change in drug laws.
