COP on the Hill:

Stories from the week of January 26, 2018

COP and Heroin Treatment Options: I spent part of the week meeting with health staffers, explaining the Swiss MAT (Medication Assisted Treatment). I will finish next week, making contact with a total of 76 offices.

Satisfying weekly Mexican food fix pays dividends: Sitting on a stool next to the cash register, means every customer reads the shirt. Two weeks ago a guy engaged me, asking why. We finished our chat, with him saying I had to talk to his father in law, the House Delegate. On Saturday afternoon the MD Delegate and I sat down at a coffee house. He started out as a ‘hell no’ and finished with “I have much to digest.”

BTW, his big concern was the ‘Gateway Fact.’ Response: it is easier for a 14 y/o to buy pot than beer. So, taking that marijuana is definitely a gateway drug, how does prohibition help? He had no response. (winning a debate point, does not equal he has rejected the Gateway Theory…but it does make one reflect)
