COP on the Hill: Stories from the week of Sept 15, 2023


Thin Blue Line:  On Thursday I ran into a Capitol police officer I had not seen since Covid…We caught up on Life.  As always, I asked how he was in the aftermath of the Jan 6 attack.  He is doing fine, even as he said some guys are still hurting upstairs.  I told him how proud I was that he and Blue Line performed with courage and fortitude on that day with some paying the ultimate price. Nobody cried but it was a Moment.

Go to Guy:  Grover Norquist had several questions about how the Oregon decrim was going (he is very Libertarian on the drug issue).  I gave him the answers and then he asked me to make a group presentation next Wednesday which I will.

On the right Track: Part of my presentation on how to improve our approaches to opioid addiction, I have been mentioning (in regards to relapse) both hydromorphone and a strain of marijuana known in California as “herojuana.”  This is today’s Marijuana Moment news brief.

The chairman of the Hawaii House Committee on Human Services cited medical cannabis as an opioid alternative
