Boy, Rankin and the Rez seem to be very silent on it. Hmmmm. Since the plethora of liquor stores isn't panning out, maybe selling dope will work!

VERY disappointed in Bailey, the RCBOS, and Flowood and Rez officials. Will donate and vote accordingly as the county heads to Trailer Park Quality of Life standards under their "leadership."

Our Rankin County and Rez officials have SOLD OUT, long ago. ANYTHING for a buck.

LiberaLtarians, all.

I don’t care how they vote, but the people voted overwhelmingly to allow it. Why does an ignorant redneck who gets elected to fill a redneck job think he (or she) all of a sudden knows more than the “people” who pay their pittance of a salary I just don’t get it. Maybe one of you “ignorant and omnipotent” public servants can identify yourself and explain. BTW, who is paying you to vote against this?

The people can't stand being told no. There will be plenty of other places to get your Rx filled.

If this is the attitude of the typical supported, my vote has changed. NO to Med. Marijuana.

Again I ask, are people being arrested and prosecuted for smoking weed in their homes to "ease the pain" or whatever their "medicinal" justification is? I'm not hearing a whole lot about grandma and grandpa getting busted for being pot heads. Do your thing. Do it quietly. Don't bother other people with it. What's the problem?

Espy just told the board no vote can be taken on the entry for Supervisor Jones as it is not considered proper public notice. WHO let that happen?
Mrs. Jones then withdraws her entry on the agenda.

Likelihood of fentanyl added to rec & med mj causes new threat to dopers.

Right. Yet, shouldn't they be able to get it at a licensed business instead of supporting the black market?

Anonymous said...

@9:55 that is ignorant. why would ANYONE add Fentanyl to weed? It doesn't make economic sense.

What is Griffins Interest ??

Canton was the weed capital before this legislation passed.

Just a matter of time before some dumba$$ surfaces.

"“people” who pay their pittance of a salary"

@8:54 I bet you've used that line before & still received a citation.

hahahah! NO dispensaries in Madison County
but supervisor vote was 3-2.

Banks and Griffin want weed all over your county.~~~~

68% of Madison County voters did not vote to legalize pot! That was 68% of the registered statewide voters who actually voted.

Each county/city can decide what they want. Group think is not applicable.

It's funny to see how many people still refer to this issue as relating to "medical" marijuana. Everyone knows this will be full-blown recreational use as soon as the facilities open. Hide and watch.

Pro marijuana / anti marijuana. Either way, this is just the latest step in the decline......

Bill Dees said...

@11:25 AM, no, 68% of Madison County residents didn't vote for medical marijuana, 66.7% of Madison county voters voted in favor of medical marijuana. You really should do just a bit of
Googling before you comment.

Love the insanity of people complaining about it getting fentanyl in the weed. Do they not know this is a great way to make sure it does not get into the weed. This stuff coming from dispensary, is government regulated and tested. This is how you get the fentanyl out of the weed and make it safer.

Anonymous said...

No BILL DEES, you really should do just a bit - well, maybe a bit more and look for the actual numbers - of Googling before you comment.

At best read, Madison County voted 60% FOR MM; those that voted for the Initiative, Madison County voters voted 53.7% in favor.

9:58 AM It already all over the county.
The people of this state voted for it so
there would be quality control and safety. .

9:55 - Fentanyl has been an approved narcotic patch for decades.

On another matter...Hold on! You mean Jones and Espy don't interact at all until dookie splatters the fan?

Pulitzer said...

If Jones' motion, halted by Espy, is moot, and the deadline has passed, doesn't that mean it's too late now for the county to opt out?

Anonymous said...

MC Supervisors COULD call a special meeting. Should require a 1 hour notice....
Yes they could opt out fully -- but Gerald Steen doesn't want that.
He is the hold up for a 3rd vote to opt out- thus what you saw occur yesterday.
IT was obvious.

Ya'll remember that come next supervisor election time.
Please tell us Steen has an opponent.

Sure did notice Supervisor Jones entry was withdrawn. If she was going to motion, that entry was NOT the proper way to notice per the law.
Why was the item worded the way it was presented anyway on that agenda?
Who does to agenda? Was that botched on purpose?

Anonymous said...

Espy was too quick to point out that the procedure was invalid. He was perched like a buzzard. Supervisors have agenda input. The County Admin types up the agenda. Espy sees it prior to the meeting. Espy and Jones are not exactly in the same social circles. Phil Bryant's daughter was a dunce. Just throwing that out there.

The opt-out deadline is passed. No time for a special meeting. Mary is fit to be tied. Steen gets the church vote. D.I. winds up in the ditch.

County vote does not apply to or impact incorporated cities within the county. It will only impact unincorporated areas of the county.

Now, now, be nice to the out of state commentors.

Trollfest '09

Trollfest '07 was such a success that Jackson Jambalaya will once again host Trollfest '09. Catch this great event which will leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Othor Cain and his band, The Black Power Structure headline the night while Sonjay Poontang returns for an encore performance. Former Frank Melton bodyguard Marcus Wright makes his premier appearance at Trollfest singing "I'm a Sweet Transvestite" from "The Rocky Horror Picture Show." Kamikaze will sing his new hit, “How I sold out to da Man.” Robbie Bell again performs: “Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be Bells” and “Any friend of Ed Peters is a friend of mine”. After the show, Ms. Bell will autograph copies of her mug shot photos. In a salute to “Dancing with the Stars”, Ms. Bell and Hinds County District Attorney Robert Smith will dance the Wango Tango.

Wrestling returns, except this time it will be a Battle Royal with Othor Cain, Ben Allen, Kim Wade, Haley Fisackerly, Alan Lange, and “Big Cat” Donna Ladd all in the ring at the same time. The Battle Royal will be in a steel cage, no time limit, no referee, and the losers must leave town. Marshand Crisler will be the honorary referee (as it gives him a title without actually having to do anything).

Meet KIM Waaaaaade at the Entergy Tent. For five pesos, Kim will sell you a chance to win a deed to a crack house on Ridgeway Street stuffed in the Howard Industries pinata. Don't worry if the pinata is beaten to shreds, as Mr. Wade has Jose, Emmanuel, and Carlos, all illegal immigrants, available as replacements for the it. Upon leaving the Entergy tent, fig leaves will be available in case Entergy literally takes everything you have as part of its Trollfest ticket price adjustment charge.

Donna Ladd of The Jackson Free Press will give several classes on learning how to write. Smearing, writing without factchecking, and reporting only one side of a story will be covered. A donation to pay their taxes will be accepted and she will be signing copies of their former federal tax liens. Ms. Ladd will give a dramatic reading of her two award-winning essays (They received The Jackson Free Press "Best Of" awards.) "Why everything is always about me" and "Why I cover murders better than anyone else in Jackson".

In the spirit of helping those who are less fortunate, Trollfest '09 adopts a cause for which a portion of the proceeds and donations will be donated: Keeping Frank Melton in his home. The “Keep Frank Melton From Being Homeless” booth will sell chances for five dollars to pin the tail on the jackass. John Reeves has graciously volunteered to be the jackass for this honorable excursion into saving Frank's ass. What's an ass between two friends after all? If Mr. Reeves is unable to um, perform, Speaker Billy McCoy has also volunteered as when the word “jackass” was mentioned he immediately ran as fast as he could to sign up.

In order to help clean up the legal profession, Adam Kilgore of the Mississippi Bar will be giving away free, round-trip plane tickets to the North Pole where they keep their bar complaint forms (which are NOT available online). If you don't want to go to the North Pole, you can enjoy Brant Brantley's (of the Mississippi Commission on Judicial Performance) free guided tours of the quicksand field over by High Street where all complaints against judges disappear. If for some reason you are unable to control yourself, never fear; Judge Houston Patton will operate his jail where no lawyers are needed or allowed as you just sit there for minutes... hours.... months...years until he decides he is tired of you sitting in his jail. Do not think Judge Patton is a bad judge however as he plans to serve free Mad Dog 20/20 to all inmates.

Trollfest '09 is a pet-friendly event as well. Feel free to bring your dog with you and do not worry if your pet gets hungry, as employees of the Jackson Zoo will be on hand to provide some of their animals as food when it gets to be feeding time for your little loved one.

Relax at the Fox News Tent. Since there are only three blonde reporters in Jackson (being blonde is a requirement for working at Fox News), Megan and Kathryn from WAPT and Wendy from WLBT will be on loan to Fox. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both and a torn-up Obama yard sign will entitle you to free drinks served by Megan, Wendy, and Kathryn. Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required. Just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '09 is for EVERYONE!!!

This is definitely a Beaver production.

Trollfest '07

Jackson Jambalaya is the home of Trollfest '07. Catch this great event which promises to leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Sonjay Poontang and his band headline the night with a special steel cage, no time limit "loser must leave town" bout between Alan Lange and "Big Cat"Donna Ladd following afterwards. Kamikaze will perform his new song F*** Bush, he's still a _____. Did I mention there was no referee? Dr. Heddy Matthias and Lori Gregory will face off in the undercard dueling with dangling participles and other um, devices. Robbie Bell will perform Her two latest songs: My Best Friends are in the Media and Mama's, Don't Let Your Babies Grow up to be George Bell. Sid Salter of The Clarion-Ledger will host "Pin the Tail on the Trial Lawyer", sponsored by State Farm.

There will be a hugging booth where in exchange for your young son, Frank Melton will give you a loooong hug. Trollfest will have a dunking booth where Muhammed the terrorist will curse you to Allah as you try to hit a target that will drop him into a vat of pig grease. However, in the true spirit of Separate But Equal, Don Imus and someone from NE Jackson will also sit in the dunking booth for an equal amount of time. Tom Head will give a reading for two hours on why he can't figure out who the hell he is. Cliff Cargill will give lessons with his .80 caliber desert eagle, using Frank Melton photos as targets. Tackleberry will be on hand for an autograph session. KIM Waaaaaade will be passing out free titles and deeds to crackhouses formerly owned by The Wood Street Players.

If you get tired come relax at the Fox News Tent. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag.
