Cops on the Hill:   Stories from the week of April 29, 2022  


Good Start:  I was invited to attend an educational seminar at John Hopkins University in Baltimore on Wednesday.  Dr Carl Hart of Harvard was the main attraction (Professor and casual heroin user).  I was not on the panel but during Q & A, a student asked for some info about the new Oregon decrim program…No one on the panel knew much…The organizer called on my and I gave the 75-80 attendees 4 minutes of the program and results.

Remembered:        Hi Howard, thanks for reaching out. We are down a judiciary staffer and I have met with you multiple times over the years. Connecting you with SJ Matthews from our team. She may be able to meet with you. Best,
