COP on the Hill: Stories from the weeks of October 2 & 9, 2015

Stories from the week of October 2 & 9, 2015

The Future Congress: At Grover’s meeting this week the parade of 2016 candidates has begun. …I had a solid chat with Alex Meluskey who is challenging Senator McCain for the US Senate seat.   He allowed me to say he is a huge fan of the 10th Amendment (states’ rights) and he would vote the 10th regarding marijuana.

The other gentleman I had a chat with is the speaker of the Arizona House.

Free Sample Congressman?:   I spent all day Tuesday going to 100 offices to deliver 2015 updates for staffers. I ended my brief chats, asking all the staffers if the legislative aide wanted their free sample now or should I come back at 500..as I patted my fairly large briefcase. Fortunately, no one called 911 to have me arrested. Though MJ is legal in DC, it is not inside the federal buildings.

In the elevator a Congressman read my shirt and grinned. I asked him if he wanted a free sample. He gave me a stern look.
