WriterGoph -- my inclusion of those items was intended to avoid exactly the type of response I got from you. I was not trying to make a political argument about any of those items. I explicitly included items on both ends of the political spectrum to avoid the usual "right wing nut job" comment that so many posts solicit on this board. If you think recreational weed dispenseries are "essential" despite the majority of the States in this country not having them, then so be it. It wasn't my point. I'll cede your point on abortion clinics.WTF? Why are abortion clinics mixed in with gun shops and weed/liquor stores?? Wow. Is womens' health not essential? Are women supposed to stop having the right to choose during the pandemic?
This is one of the strangest examples I've seen on this board and my mind won't stop racing trying to figure out your thought process here.
PS. Marijuana is approved for some level of medical use in most states in the country. Many people rely on it for help with PTSD, anxiety, depression, pain, etc, so cutting off peoples' access would be like closing a pharmacy. I know a lot of antiquated people have a hard time understanding marijuana is actually a BETTER alternative in many cases than prescription drugs, but it's being proven each day for people whose lives its improving.
My frustration since day one of this COVID response is items A, B, and C have been allowed but items D, E, and F have not been allowed <-----is that better, WriterGoph? despite what I believe has been a very random and political determination since the very onset.
