YP – Senate Public Health and Welfare Committee Holds Last Public Hearing on Medical Marijuana

After each individual spoke in front of the senators, President and Senator Hob Bryan stated that one of the goals he had in mind when holding the public hearings is to dig deeper into the issues and have a public conversation. President Bryan feels the committee has accomplished this.

“I do not intend to call additional hearings. I think the hearings we’ve had have been productive, ”Bryan said. “Speaking for myself, I think I’ve gotten something out of every performance in every audience, which is a pretty good track record.”

Senator Kevin Blackwell, the top lawmakers on the issue in the upper house, is currently working on the medical marijuana legislation and has previously told Y’all Politics that he hopes to have a measure ready for consideration in August.

YP – Federal and Mississippi Health Officials Are Unnecessarily Complicating COVID Disclosure Messages

Whether in the White House or the MS Health Department, this haughty and awkward treatment of people who disagree with them is the height of arrogance and deafness of tone. It assumes that everyone who reads things on Facebook are idiots who are unable to decide for themselves what is true and what is not. I can tell you that in 16 years of Y’all Politics, there have been tens of thousands of comments on our Facebook posts that I disagree with, but unless they are defamatory, we generally take the position that people should be free. . to express yourself.

Unfortunately, Mississippi people (and Americans in general) have a long history of ignoring public health advice. Not wearing a seat belt can kill you. Smoking can kill you. Being fat can kill you. And public health advocates have screamed for decades about all three, and yet people still make decisions. Possibly bad. . . but your choice nonetheless. The COVID public health advice is now being dispensed with such self-righteousness, and it seems to have the clear intention of simply beating people up. People generally don’t like that and reject it.

The difference now and clearly what MSDH does not understand is that many people who doubt the COVID vaccine believe in their hearts that COVID has become a political weapon. It has become a weapon to substantially alter the course of the 2020 political campaign.

Wade resolved the abortion issue once and for all, ”said Attorney General Fitch. “But all it did was establish a regime of special rules for abortion jurisprudence that has left these cases out of step with other Court decisions and neutral principles of law applied by the Court. As a result, state legislatures and the people they represent have lacked clarity in passing laws to protect legitimate public interests, and artificial indicators have stymied a major public debate about how we, as a society, care about dignity. of women and their children. It is time for the Court to establish this right and return this political debate to the political branches of government. “
