Cops on the Hill:   Stories from the weeks of August 26 & Sept 2, 2022

Buzz Saw: I had a lively chat with a legislative assistant who quickly inserted how he was a recovering heroin addict…..and completely opposed to any reducing penalties for drug possession.  BTW, besides cops, prosecutors and conservative ministers, former addicts are quite often opposed to legalization.  And they often are agitated by my shirt/position!


Here and most often, I am accused of not understanding how dangerous crack, meth and heroin are.  LOL.  This gentleman immediately dismissed the Portugal decrim program, since it is a foreign country.  He also dismissed out of hand the Oregon results, since it has only been in effect 20 months.  We kept it professional and parted cordially.  And so it goes

* Consider being a member of COP at $40 or more per year. All contributions are tax-deductible. 40 dollars buys all the copy paper COP uses in one year. Law Enforcement’s voice in opposition to current policy is vital on the Hill to achieve a repeal of federal drug prohibition. COP provides that voice. www.citizensopposingprohibition.org
