COP on the Hill: Stories from the week of November 11, 2016

Stories from the week of November 11, 2016

It’s what I do: On Saturday the 5th I spoke on a panel for the NORML chapter in Harrisonburg, VA. The James Madison U students were eager to move the issue forward. Karen was there in her shirt and thus, we made a ‘cute couple.’

Early congrats: I accepted MPP’s election night party invitation. I left a bit early due to the alarm going off at 0600 the next morning to go to work. I had an opportunity to talk to Rob Kampia, ED for MPP. I predicted 5 of 9 wins for the night and thanked him for his leadership. You probably know it turned out to be 8 of 9 wins. We will know in six months, if this Tsunami of a winning night will translate into votes in the Congress and beyond.

PS – Rob was quite certain that Michigan is the 2018 state to ‘go Colorado.’ It being my home state for some 25 years, you can be sure I will be in the thick of it.
