COP on the Hill: Stories from the week of May 19, 2023


Must Be Present to Win:  Heading to my 1015 first meeting of the day, I entered the elevator and nodded “mornin” to the lone occupant.  After a few seconds my brain kicked in, so I  added “Senator.”  It was Senator Cotton (R-AR).  I was able to deliver my 30 second elevator pitch.  And so it goes.


Bill to make fentanyl Schedule One:  The aide to Speaker McCarthy told us of a new bill at the Norquist meeting.  I was able to ask the question: ‘Doctors give patients 1000s of doses of fentanyl for pain every day.  Making it Schedule One means ‘no accepted medical use’ and illegal.  Thus, we will need to legalize heroin as a substitute.’…..much laughter, followed by some clarification.  LOL


FWIW / Anecdotal:  On Saturday at Costco a record 3 people stopped me to say they support the shirt (legalize heroin).  Always feels good to receive that validation.   Of course, those who disagree, usually just scowl and say nothing.


Spring Break:  I need a break from the Swamp…I am jumping on my Big Two-Wheeler on Monday, headed to Yellowstone, Grand Tetons, Bryce Canyon, Moab, UT, etc…back in a month..
