COP on the Hill:

Stories from the week of March 30, 2018

**Stupid throat/voice still not right…so limited activity this week, again.

Warms my heart… Besides a meeting with a supporter/county commissioner from Oklahoma and the Grover meeting, it was a very slow week.

A dozen of us celebrated last week’s victory of denying the DEA’s funding to go after state-legal, medical stores, etc. NCIA (National Cannabis Industry Assoc) hosted the 3 hour “happy hour.” A late arrival related a story from 10 years ago: he was a staffer for a Congressman. He remembered listening to my presentation and making an impact. I was flattered. Of course, I did not remember him from Adam.

That person now heads up, the big boss, of one of the largest MJ organizations in the world. One never knows the impact one has.

** Stupid throat is now close enough…back to Congress work on Monday.
