COP on the Hill:
Stories from the week of June 23, 2017

40 Minute Metro breakdown! Thank goodness: I had to catch a later train. Mr. Industrial Hemp entrepreneur from Colorado sat next to me for the hour ride home. I learned as much, as I had learned in the previous 20 years. His background is Colorado farmer/rancher.

Allies: Don Murphy – MPP – and I had breakfast with a rep from the American Legion at the Capitol Club on Thursday. 90 minutes later – all had a thorough understanding of how to proceed into the future…regarding increasing the access of God’s green plant into the hands of His people….small step, maybe medium…this org has chats with the White House on a regular basis.

Good sweat = good results: Later on Thursday I hung out with Don on the Capitol steps to grab a minute or two with the Congressmen. The sun, heat and humidity were nasty. The record-breaking results are below.

Personal Privilege: I have never, ever been a guy to go & “hang out” to see what develops. I prefer structure i.e. six, pre-arranged, date/time certain meetings type stuff…Don of MPP has taught me the value of his style and I will do more of this in the future. This old dog just learned a new trick.

Soirée: The German embassy held their summer reception Thursday evening & I was invited. Three hours of deutsches Bier and amazing hors-d’œuvres..and the surprise was a woman with excellent questions about American drug strategy. After 20 minutes she let me know she is a DEA agent attached to DC headquarters. We ended up with a wonderful half hour of constructive dialog/contact.
