COP on the Hill: Stories from the week of September 19, 2014

Stories from the week of September 19, 2014

Road Trip:  Monday and Tuesday were spent on Long Island, NY as we spent time to work up a game plan for Costa Rica to move in an anti-prohibition direction.  A road map was generated and will put into action after approval of higher ups.

Get it in writing:  I had a good chat with the three candidates for federal office that I met at a meeting this week.   Looking at one’s website and position on issues, I had my doubts whether he would support our position in the House.  So, I wrote him that direct question.  He responded directly and firmly he would employ the 10 Amendment on marijuana policy. … I wished him well.

I am focusing on the Senate in September and October.  We are asking our friends in Mr. Reid’s office to hold a vote on a Senator Paul amendment to deny federal money to enforce federal law in the 30+ states with some form of medical marijuana use.
