COP on the Hill

Stories from the weeks of September 6, 2019

A Real Democrat?; I had a sitdown chat with my CMan Trone, a Democrat. What an experience…He loves the Drug War/would not change much; vehemently against legalize/regulate marijuana, did not know what the 10th Amendment was (his aide filled him in – on the spot); believes strongly in the Gateway theory of MJ..I thought I walked into a time capsule…Yikes!!

Beauty Salons as the path to success? On Saturday at the café the woman asked if I were a police officer, then about the shirt..’ I was talking to my hairdresser about the shirt the other day and the hairdresser wants to know why.’
3-4 minutes later she was all set to deliver my talking points to the beauty salon. Move over Rotary? I should spend more time with hair dressers? You know how they (and barbers) talk!!

My 10th Amendment Legislation: FWIW – I had heard solid, reliable information this week that the Senate will act on returning the issue of marijuana back to the states…..not out of love, rather political hardball. I will keep you appraised.

313 personal chats with a Member of Congress… 01 this week (CMan Trone, D-MD)
3245 Presentations to Congressional staffers… 06 this week
376 chats with other elected officials, state reps, senators, VIPs, etc. 02 this week (two candidates for Congress)
