For a state government that is made up of people who tout themselves as “small government” proponents, they sure appreciate to create endless laws to over step their position in their citizens’ lives.
Reproductive rights plus wages are 2 examples that immediately come to mind, but there are absolutely more.
But the examples don’t just end there, that’s for sure. I remember back when they started cracking down on prescription pain pills, even for chronic pain patients plus cancer patients. They were citing the increases in opiate abuse throughout our state, but that was mostly due to heroin abuse. As a performative action, the governor made the lives of cancer patients much more angry while doing genuinely little to really improve the opiate crisis. Things have changed since then, even though I never forgot. Now they’re doing the same thing with medical marijuana. The governor overnight decided to impose caps on all of the routes of administration for cannabis products. Now people who need high doses of cannabis for their medical troubles were turned away from dispensaries the afternoon after the surprise ruling went into effect. You can appeal the cap, even though I have heard the process takes 2 weeks or longer. Why does our state government keep insisting on mangling the marijuana rules plus regulations? Both of us were doing perfectly enjoyable before they messed everything up with these ridiculous caps on THC. Some of us require more cannabis to medication than others plus there’s nothing wrong with that. While I’m not affected by the new rule because of the amount of THC I consume bi-weekly, I suppose of various people who were immediately affected by it. My heart goes out to these people plus their dwindling medical cannabis recommendation.
