COP on the Hill:

Stories from the week of March 10, 2017

Box of Chocolates: entering an office in Longworth, I met two French doctors (had a flag on their lapel). I said hello to them and ended up in a ten-minute chat in French about the Swiss program.

Thank you: Senator Booker (D-NJ) was at the elevator in Longworth, waiting w/ two other Cman. I introduced myself, mission and then thanked him for his leadership in ending the War on Drugs. He re-shook my hand, thanking me for the kind words….”it (LE support) is good to know that.”

Cman Franks (R-AZ)..met him in his office saying, “I represent cops who believe if you have a drug problem, see a doctor – not a jail.” He responded (in front of 4 VIPs from his District), “ I could use some drugs right now.” “I have plenty of free samples in my briefcase; Prozac, Valium, pot, Oxi.” I replied. Everyone laughed, as the Cman and his four guests went into the main office.

Follow-up letter to Cman Tim Ryan (D-OH)

Congressman Ryan,
Thank you for your time last week in the hallway, as I explained how the Swiss are very effective/pro-life in dealing with their heroin abuse problems. I have visited their clinics in 01, 08 and 16 to become knowledgeable. My fluency in French and German aided my efforts with the Health Ministry.
I remain at your service,
