Cops on the Hill: Stories from the week of August 27 & September 3, 2021


Cops on the Hill

Curtain Call: After I wrote  a one minute memo to explain how Biden could return MJ to State control vs federal, my Wednesday meeting host asked me to prepare the same remarks for his next  Wednesday meeting, which I did.   Several cogent questions were asked and one was about the ‘punch’ of today’s MJ versus what I smoked in college.  LOL


Nice & Busy:  I Just had two solid weeks of 9 and 11 presentations to a lot who wanted to learn about this new ‘Oregon Decrim’ thing.  One Senators’ aide was a 5 generation cowgirl, ‘born in the saddle’ and we spent a few minutes about how to ride 6 months on a horse..Note: I use that as a lead-in to articulate why the 10th Amendment is needed and should be employed for all drugs.


Another aide was a former public defender and knew as much about my topic as I did…THAT is always a special joy to encounter and establish a relationship with.


I had my first Republican aide who indicated the boss might sign on to the decrim bill: HR 4020.  That Member has already voted yes to 10th Amendment for MJ.
