Cops on the Hill: Stories from the week of August 20, 2021

Cops on the Hill

Stories from the week of August 20, 2021

 Making a Contribution:  After an 18-month halt/hiatus, anti-tax guy Grover Norquist is again holding a live meeting of his “Grand Central Station of the Conservative Movement” at his DC headquarters.  Simply grand it was to see and chat with the 150 leaders who attend.

One of his guests spoke of the need to legalize/regulate marijuana in all 50 states.  Grover had a very technical question which the guest could not answer, so he called on me.  I explained the nuance between drugs in schedules 1-5, drugs controlled by the GRAS rules* and the two drugs which are outside the entire system: alcohol and tobacco.  My advice for the group was to support any move to deschedule marijuana, just like alcohol/tobacco are.

It’s cool, when a drug policy question comes up and all eyes turn to me for the answer they can trust.
