COP on the Hill:

Stories from the weeks of November 10 & 17, 2017

2017 Senator Rubion - FL

This foto captures the last couple of weeks: a 2-minute chat with Senator Rubio (R-FL), as I gave him the main points of the Swiss MAT program. Thanks to my partner, Don Murphy of MPP and his trusty camera.

Fun Moment in my life: We all have had the feeling that you desperately want to tell someone what a muffin head they are. I was distributing to all Member offices the sheet on why officers do and do not want to legalize MJ. As I was speaking to the aide in Cman Poe’s office, Poe was standing 6 feet away. Halfway thru my 2-minute explanation, as I was saying how cops want to search every car via “smelling MJ,” former Judge Poe broke into the chat, saying officers don’t feel that way.

We went a full 5 minutes from 3 feet apart in an oral battle royale. As Texans, I kept saying we should apply the 10th Amendment and “let Texas run Texas” free from the influence of Washington, DC. He replied the federal government must have a role in protecting people from harmful drugs, even if the state of Texas legalizes marijuana. It was great!!

PS…a few hours after our chat he announced his retirement. No, not because of our chat.. he has leukemia.
