 Cops on the Hill:   Stories from the week of May 6, 2022


Double Time on Sunday??:  Sunday afternoon I participated in a German podcast regarding full legalization, Oregon and decrim – and the status of USA drug laws and the  forecast for this year.  There were lots of Q & A, all in German, for the audience in Germany.  Fun it was.


Honored to be asked:  On Monday morning I had an hour + zoom chat with a Facebook, META, Twitter investigator, mostly about hallucinogens.  Meta found me somehow and decided I am an expert in drugs and drug policy.  His team learns from experts all over the globe, so it was truly an honor.


Bonus:  I noticed about every 5 minutes he would say a word and the accent was not quite native USA…as we were wrapping up, I asked him what his first language was.  German, he replied…we chatted auf Deutsch the last two minutes!  Fun it was.


Spring Break — My better half and I are jumping the pond next week for a month of R & R in Old Europe.  Six solid months in Washington, DC and the boy is in need of a break.
