COP on the Hill

Stories from the week of July 15 & 22, 2016

A Long Time Coming: On Wednesday Senator Graham held the first ever positive hearing on the medical use of MJ. 8 witnesses. IMHO, 5 were positive, 2 neutral and the SAM rep was a typical muffin head, spouting the prohibition line. I thanked the Senator for his efforts.
A shout out to Don Murphy of MPP who has had many chats with Graham the last year to convert him to our side.

Life Keeps Getting in the Way: I had an excellent day with Congressional aides on the 13th with 7 presentations. Then my dear brother called from North Carolina…could I be his Best Man at his wedding—- tomorrow? And he made an honest woman of his girl friend of 12 years. I’ll be back to work, next week…God willing and the creeks don’t rise.

“Smoking cannabis is safe” ( Letters, July 15 ):

Cannabis is a drug. Like all drugs, its use can be problematic. Fed studies show about 9 percent of users become addicted. It is not a play toy. I would give it the same rules and respect as beer.
