Groups sue over California county's plan to drill oil wells

"In energy News. Environmental and community groups have sued current county after its board of Supervisors approved in ordinance this week that could fast track tens of thousands of new oil and gas wells. Sierra Club and other groups have asked the court to order county leaders to set aside the ordinance, which allows the county to use a blanket environmental impact report when considering permits for new wells and bar Kern County supervisors from approving any new drilling

Rudy Gobert's Transformation Started In The D-League

"On sunday rudy. Gobert made his second straight appearance in an nba. All star game. Tom make it a second confederate and for years. Now the big man with the even bigger wingspan. There's been a dominant force within the nba. Tolbert defensive player of the year. There was a time when that was not the case. Time when rudy gobert future was very much in doubt. Today the fx christopher come ronnie takes us back to the time when go gobert was uncertain about where it was headed and explains how he climbed his way to the top. They knew that if he could fill out if he could continue to develop defensively and add various tidbits to his game. Offensively could potentially become a game changer in the league. That's their mind in rudy's mind. He always believed that he would took from wondering athletic. I'm under scotto. It's monday march eighth. And this is the league. It felt like something great emotion and ask past. I s not get this. This is here. you're gonna be the athlete. It stays with you so chris basketball fan today. Think of rudy gobert this absolute force you know a guy who dominates around the rim often makes other teams change their style of play when they face him. But you recently spoke with rudy and wrote about how that has not always been the case so take us back to the days when rudy gobert was not yet rudy. Gobert there. Yes so rudy. Gobert was drafted by the denver nuggets in two thousand thirteen and acquired by the jazz in a draft night. Trade played for show les the french league and his sizeable things into the twenty seventh overall. Pick and he came into the league as a relative unknown. What you'll bring to this team. I mean i i know. You're very long and and a defensive presence. What do you think you can. How can you help this team right away right away. Yeah can we. He had worked his way up the international level coming up in france he had to work himself onto the radar of even french national teams. He wasn't really all that known as a fifteen sixteen year old. How long have you been playing basketball nine years nine. So did you grow up playing soccer before he was on jazz team. That had several high draft picks on it. They had derrick favors. Ns canter to former high draft picks. Big men that played rudy's position. They had a veteran and andreas. Who was a veteran presence on that team as a big man and under that regime rudy kind of found himself as the odd man out but the jess drafted him and took him on as a project and he apparently was not the most stylish guy. What he i community league. yes so obviously. When you're twenty one year old seven foot one kit. That's tall and gangly. It's hard to find clothes that fit you. Great i was going to be on. Is doing right now if you see rudy these various nba awards where he's won the nba defensive player of the year. Two times now. He's showing up and looking very much like a stylistic parisian that he probably always wanted to be back in two thousand thirteen when he was still sort of odd man out on the jazz as you put it. He got sent down to the bakersfield jam of what was then the d. league. i from a life standpoint. What was it. Like for rudy gobert. End up so far off the beaten path and you know in one of the rougher parts of california yes so it's a culture shock for anybody. I think who wants to be a professional basketball player to have to go to a place like bakersfield. California bakersfield has kind of a rough and tumble streak about it. It isn't the most friendliest places. Well tonight we are taking an in depth look into black tar heroin and its presence here in kern county. Rudy's coach will void talked about it would be culture shock for anybody. Let alone a parisian arriving in bakersfield. Which is we're like community area where where are rena and everything was based. That is kind of like mess. Mess capital of the world. So i think he was not going to find a croissant sprint. Snow and anywhere around there. The coaches just told him to stay in his hotel room. And just relax tries to be honest. tells hotel for the most in when he wanted to go work out at the gym. the bakersfield complex. Had you know that all that stuff in their facility but it was very much like. It was almost like a private school in that. He went from work to the hotel room. And that's

Puede his been taken up by many movements. From Barack Obama's two thousand eight presidential campaign to the fight for climate justice to the continued struggle for workers rights to Spain's anti austerity campaigns of 2019. Martin Luther King Junior said that the arc of the moral universe is long but it bends towards justice we all know that it only bends towards justice because of individuals willing to put themselves on the front lines of the Civil Rights Struggle Laura Sweater who turned ninety on April tenth. Twenty twenty has never left the front lines. She's a force of nature that has transformed the lives of those who grow and harvest the food that sustains each of us creating the phone welcome movement with Cesar Chavez she is the mother of the modern labor movement also came up with the idea that consumers have the power to shape and push industries like great growers to improve farm worker conditions. She then that. Labor negotiations to memorialize will can benefit in the nation's first of their kind collective bargaining agreements. Deloris is a fearless and incredibly effective advocate legislation. She championed the landmark building nineteen sixty to allow people to take the California driver's examination in Spanish. And and she's never stopped last year. She helped enact leads to create California's Fund for safe and affordable drinking water Quetta who describes himself as a born again feminists consciously incorporated feminism into her fight for workers rights and push Gloria Steinem and the one thousand nine hundred sixty s to expand the feminist movement to include issues of race thereby helping make feminism and Movement for all women not just white women from the beginning. Dolores wet has also been an environmental champion fighting to protect workers from harmful pesticides sanding shoulder to shoulder with native Americans at Standing Rock and picking up litter after every rally she led. I Talk About a fiftieth anniversary with my hero and living legend Dolores Wetter Kelly. Working Fourteen hour days with Heff Foundation to make sure farmwork has have access to protective equipment food and benefits during this pandemic. And if you thought you knew everything about Delores also talk about why she loves burning man. Dolores where are you right now all right now? I'm in the belly of the beast. I'm in Bakersfield California Bakersfield and all of Kern county. You are going through really rough times right now. Dolores is a lot of people that have been laid off. I think it's over a thousand oil workers that have been laid off. One of the company is completely. Shut Down Lager. People EARN EMPLOYEES CIVILLY TRAGIC. But we know at the same time. And that's why we see that our air is a little cleaner a usually here in Kern county. We are women the worst areas of pollution for air pollution in the country. And we know that that air pollution really affects not only the physical health especially if the children but also the mental health of children. Here we have Not only to freeways that can make your highway ninety nine and highway five of but then we have all of the pollution that comes from the Agricultural Industry Caesar industrial growers that have not really converted their tractors They're so easy in a lot of diesel. It's a big struggle and when you try to bring to the attention they consider this to be an attack instead of thinking. Okay what do we have to do to make them more economically friendly jobs for people so these are the challenges that we have ahead of us as we try to convert all of the fossil fuel industries into industries. That are more friendly for everybody. So deloris in the late fifties and sixties when you have founding the farmworker movement and and really bringing those issues to the full when whether environmental issues like drinking water and air quality and pesticide runoff. How did those issues fest? Come to your attention right at the beginning at the very beginning you know. I grew up in Stockton California which is also like a cultural area. I was in a field in. I see this what I thought was fog rolling in but I thought how can you have fog in the summertime? Well it was a pesticide residue. That was rolling in. That was one of the first things that farmer who's complained about about the effects of Pesticides. And so we had so many cases of pesticide poisonings. Sometimes Terry crews like thirty. Forty people would been poisoned at the same time. How can this happen? Slow regard for the health farm workers so one of the first contracts that I signed a day. Employers tell exactly how many pesticides they were going to spray and where they were going to be spread out and then we passed legislation to make sure that the appeals are posted of when they sprayed some of these dangerous pesticides and then we work very very hard to get some of these dangerous pesticides restricted and banned forever and unfortunately a lot of pesticides we had because like Didi they were then shipped to Mexico to Latin American countries. And so here but we had all of these farmers could children that. Were being bored with these horrible deformities being born without arms without legs so horrific here you had children in Mexico and parts of Latin America. That were having exactly the same type of affection disabilities that were coming from pesticides

"Without disease and without symptoms and lock them in your home so some of these things moved from what we've studied from immunology microbiology aren't really messing with what we know as people of the scientific minds it read this stuff every day typically in Kern county for instance are we've tested five thousand two hundred and thirteen people and we have three hundred and forty positive cases well that's six point five percent of the population which would indicate that there is a widespread viral infection similar to flu so if you look at California these numbers are from yesterday we have thirty three thousand eight hundred sixty five code cases a total of two hundred eighty thousand nine hundred total tested that's twelve percent of Californians were positive for code so we don't in the initial as you guys know the initial models were were woefully inaccurate they predicted the millions of cases of death out of not a prevalence or incidence but death that is not materializing and cut what do I cut five go it is materializing in city California is twelve percent positives well we we have thirty nine point five million people if we just take a basic calculation extrapolate that out that equates to about four point seven million cases throughout the state of California which means this thing is widespread that's the good news we've seen one thousand two hundred and twenty seven deaths in the state of California with the possible incidence or prevalence of four point seven million that means you have a zero point zero three chance of dying from cold in nineteen the state of California zero point zero three chance of dying from code in the state of California is that does that necessitate sheltering in place does that necessitate shutting down medical systems does that necessitated people being out of work I want you to do what you do something for yourselves and for me so you can determine really how you want to spend your time listening to television and radio and I will put my record right out there with everybody else I want you to go to mark living show dot com I don't get any points for this I'm just saying go to mark living show that come and go to the daily recap and go back into late February early March mid March and so forth and you will see how consistent I've been about the subject from day one not because I'm an expert not because I'm a statistician because I'm happy demi Allah just virologist I'm not even a doctor and I don't play one at home because I research analyze and study while some hosts had their hair on fire and we're saying the president wasn't taking this seriously enough he was and he's been while some hosts were going on on that there's not enough this and there's not enough that I said it's being overstated I also said it was the responsibility of the states under state law to expand hospital beds in hospitals in and to acquire things like MRI eyes and see teas and analyze trying to provide some perspective in support for a president's federalism approach day in and day out week after week I spoke about how the fatality rate had to be too high not because I'm an expert because it didn't make sense to me what we were being told I told you I went out bought mass when they told us not to get by mass I didn't hoard them I bought some for family because they didn't make sense to me their arguments I had doctor felt she we were very polite early on he could have been nice and I asked him but he wasn't as extreme as viewpoints as he became either yes I've pointed out here we went back and looked letter part of January he said this wasn't anything to worry about and now it's let's close down till Kingdom Come I have been warning early on about civil liberties I've been warning early on that they're actually putting the wrong people in the quarantine that they should focus the resources I read Dr catch you before him I read Dr I need is to you the whole Stanford group which is now all over TV we discovered them and we will continue to do so and the media treat me one of two ways either throw me in with everybody else or they attack but they don't actually hear what I say they don't really care they don't look at the substance they don't look at the sources they've got it all figured out these guys keep writing books about talk radio I forget the lady's when Brian something or other I'm in the book the men's never spoken to me in my life they think they know how I started in radio they have no idea none they always get it wrong I think I just started in radio when I was in my forties no I always had an interest in radio when I talk about it on the air but they ignored they think that Russian Shawn and I and a few others really all the same we're not the same they're all great but we're not the same and they have a narrative that they continue to push its the wrong merit it's not the correct narrative at least not as far as I'm concerned my shows comes and same with this the most despicable source of information that you could possibly use because it so thoroughly and completely corrupted inaccurate is wikipedia I dare to check out my entrance in wikipedia it is so filled with lies and cherry picking and loading there's like one guy in boxers and a tank top sits in his mother's basement eating Cheetos and rubbing apple sauce on his chest that's the guy who writes a lot of the stuff so my day comes and I'm hit by a bus or whatever and people go to wikipedia read about me they're not going to know who I am they should go to my books that's what I present they should go to my website if they care not people interpreting what I say or saying what I say there hasn't been a single book written about conservative talk radio when they talk to me and they haven't got me right yet the one I bring us because I just percent one that's why and so they'll never get this right that is what my positions have been they want you to think

Trump administration opens up drilling on federal land in California

"The trump administration is lifting a five year ban on hydraulic fracking and oil drilling on more than a million acres of federal land across central California in Fresno current Santa Barbara and Bakersfield counties one parcel is near your somebody another near the subway and national park on fire mentalist are outraged and so is California Attorney General have your but Serra who says he'll fight it here to talk about this is terminal he's professor of environmental analysis at Pomona College welcome back to press play thank you madam well tell us about this land and why the administration is doing this well there's a couple of things that play first of all this talk about fracking as a technology which admittedly opens up wells that in many cases seem to have been played out and so industry loves this new technology is actually an old technology but the new application of it that has done remarkable work for them in pulling oil out of the ground and gas out of the ground that they didn't think they could manage so that's the tech side the politics of this or even more interesting because again this is California because this is a top administrative play no one can avoid the fact that this is in direct response to governor Newsome's argument that fracking would be under scientific review in the state of California and here's the federal government sort of suggesting that its power overseas over overwhelms out of this date so in the end we're gonna see a lot of lawsuits lawsuits based on states rights yeah you know the irony of course is not missed on anyone that this is a states rights argument at one level but it's also a question about the rulings in twenty fourteen that set aside L. B. L. lambs decision original decision to approve fracking up along the central coast and elsewhere the BLM now says it has complied with a court order but that calm whether it fully complied is probably going to be the technical part of the lawsuit but the other will be but Serra as he has been doing repeatedly sense twenty seventeen is going to suit to challenge this and basically to bog down any federal action in the state of California okay so does that mean nothing's going to happen until these lawsuits go forward well I think that's what it means because that's what it is meant in other instances in different ways so you know whether it's ninety circuit will hear this I don't know but I assume that's were the suits will go to and you know that's been tends to be sympathetic to the arguments that California has been making about the environment over the years and actually other states under its jurisdiction so my guess is this is going to end in court my guess is that by keeping it in court this becomes a way by which to slow the process down certainly until twenty twenty elections and if the White House is flipped then I think California among other places will breathe a sigh of relief but in general this is federal land feds have the ability to do whatever they want with it even if it is an **** state yeah that's that's sort of sticking point because the bureau of land management since and leave early nineteenth century has had control of all mineral rights under federal property everywhere and this is federal property your but the state of California and last month attack governor Newsome said the moratorium on fracking will review all permits in the state and that includes federal lands so it's not clear to me that legal jurisdiction or the legal legitimacy if that claim but I think that will also be adjudicated in the courts general though pre governor knew some governor brown was pretty open to allowing fracking in California right he was and that that drove drove many of us crazy because the the sort of green perspective that he loaded and and frankly did a lot of good a lot of good issues seem to be in conflict and his argument was that oil and gas have been crucial to California's economy we want to continue that process even though and the other hand we're talking about trying to become more carbon free and I think that in the end is going to be one of the central issues in the public debate which is the same moment in which cop twenty five is meeting in Barcelona and the United States is fundamentally absent from that global conversation about how to move towards a carbon free economy the trump administration is demonstrating once again is that it is most interested in being retrogressive and that it perceives that oil and gas of the way to go and the world be damned but then you have localities localities which are hurting financially like sure Kern county in the board of supervisors there unanimous unanimously approved a measure to bring the oil industry and to present their plans so you've got the on a local level you've got some lawmakers really wanting this to happen yeah you do and I fully appreciate their their desires to make that work it we've seen this in the past and walking areas for example in the nineteen eighties and nineteen nineties when clear cutting was cut back literally and logging town suffered enormously as a consequence of part of what I think any good state policy and frankly fed policy needs to do is to think very seriously about the economic impact on localities on the one hand that against the broader interests in this case carbon free economy in a climate change the world and and do some serious thinking about this you know in the early nineteen twenties to Justin name a person Gifford Pinchot who had been the first head of the four service wrote quite poignantly about the logging towns in Pennsylvania that had turned out empty because all of the winter but the four deforested and he was very concerned about those kind of economic ramifications and and we need to take that seriously I guess that's the larger point is we've got to take it seriously and there has to be a way by which to negotiate this process wholesale opening up public lands to fracking is not that policy it is a kind of political pay back that I think will not work to the president's advantage thanks for coming on today my great pleasure thank metal term Miller professor of environmental analysis at Pomona

"Six fifty eight fifty eight Nathan, let's talk little national politics here. Just a little bit has the shutdown had any impact on the the county. You know, I would say, yes. And I don't know the full extent of it. But a lot of the funding that the county receives does come from the federal government. So the longer that the shutdown takes place. I'm sure that the reimbursements that were counting on some of those can't be made until the the federal government, of course, opens up for business again Wednesday. Yeah, Wednesday, the president tweeted out that he threatened to cut off some FEMA funds from California would that have an effect on us. We haven't any fires here. He's mainly talking about the fire. But would that if he did that would that impact us? Well, I I would say again. Yes, that does have an impact on us. And again, looking at the fires that have taken place here in California. A lot of people don't realize in Fresno county, if you look at just the tree die off that's taken place. The end of two thousand seventeen we estimated one hundred twenty nine million dead trees in the Sierra alone in the ten county region from El Dorado county, all the way down to Kern county, Fresno county is the second most impacted county by tree Diaw in again Tober of two thousand seventeen there was an estimated twenty one point one million trees that had died in Fresno county alone. So this is a significant issue, and I've got I give a lot of credit to our public works department. Our department of public health they're out there receiving grants making sure that the ingress egress points or roads are cleared. So we don't have trees falling over the road. So if we do have a fire people can get in and out of there quickly. But one of the things that the president has said is because of our lack of management of of. Our force there. Do you agree or disagree with him? No, I agree. So if you go up into the forest that we have and you look at just the number of trees per acre. It is extremely crowded the best stewards of the forests have been the native Americans. And if you go back and look at pictures of Fresno county from one hundred and fifty years ago, you can see through the forest, and that's a healthy forest. But right now, what we have is a forest that is too many trees are clustered together. They're fighting for the limited resource of water. And then on top of that, you have the bark beetle infestation, and those bark beetles are going in and killing these trees, so just exacerbating the problem. All right. Let's go back to the phone lines. Now, Scott is on the line, Scott. You got a question for supervisor. Yeah. Farming community north central valley Stockton care, and I'm just wondering we've had technology for tertiary treatment of water for years, and let's wastewater or even water coming from construction sites and or farming can be run through a series of. Come out, actually. Have flown through our river systems. And I just wondered why that never ever Miller even spoken of know. You know? Well, we can talk to right now for. Yeah. I'm very familiar with tertiary actually, the city of Clovis, which I used to be on the council there uses tertiary treatment at the sewer plant so water that goes to the sewer plant in Clovis tertiary, basically, you've got secondary treatment tertiary, and so eh Clovis. I believe that there's ultraviolet light. That's used to help kill the bug. So to speak that exists in the water. But also, you've got membrane type technologies where I believe you can push water through a membrane keeps all the unwanted particles out. I'll say that tertiary treatment while it's very effective, and it brings water to a high quality. It's also expensive too. So you can't just use tertiary treatment everywhere. So whether you have a dairy, I if they wanted to put in some type of tertiary treatment process at a at a dairy in and run water through it again that's expensive in Clovis. We spent about eighty million dollars eighty million dollars building one phase of three phase sewer plant and this. Back in like two thousand and nine and that plant right now flows. It can flow up to about two point nine million gallons a day of sewer water to get it and clean that water. And that really isn't a whole lot of water in the grand scheme of things, but we spent eighty million dollars ten years ago just to do two point nine million gallons. So really that's out of our reach it. So I I don't wanna say it's out of the reach where I see tertiary having great potential is cities right now that have sewer plants and they're only using secondary treatment or they're allowing that water just to be shipped away from them. I do purple pipe systems. That's where you take tertiary treated water put it into a system and then use it for landscaping or use it for agriculture. So that water is not lost out of county or outside of the city real quick before we have to go. And again, thank you for being with us today. Big subject, obviously nationally is the reason for the shutdown the county's position on that. You know, the county really hasn't taken an official position on. On the border, obviously as one individual. I can say, 'i sworn oath to the constitution of the United States and the constitution of the state of California. What really frustrates me is a here at the state level. Many of our elected officials. It's almost like they are in a fight with the federal government with the president of the United States. That's not what this country is about. So taking that oath to uphold the constitution of the state of California as well as the United States. I'm conflicted being a conservative myself. I look at what the president wants he's in that position. He promised border wall. And really, I I'm not upset with the president for what he's doing because one of the promises that he made to the public and why the public elected him nationally.

"Yet. Just the the the the description of the policies, and of course, the legislature will have a lot to do with this. And the economy will have a lot to do with it as well, we've seen some real turbulence on Wall Street and in some of the markets around the world. And so that has to be a cautionary note for the new governor. And I think he's also going to be very mindful Gavin Newsom, we'll be of not blowing it I've not just spending the money and. Developing a reputation for not being able to manage a budget. Well, he does have a huge majorities of Democrats in the legislature. You can be sure as I imagine Sean Walsh will be happy to tell you that the Democrats have a big appetite for spending and they're going to have their own priorities. Some of which will overlap with the new governor. But this will be a new set of priorities. It'll be interesting to see what he says today in his inaugural speech, and what he says in the coming days and weeks and months about things like high speed rail and the twin tunnels in the delta which were priorities for Jerry Brown, but they may not be forever Newsom. Well, I want to talk about his priorities and talk about them with you. But here he is talking about the challenges. Many state residents face as they seek the California dream. But let's be honest. There's no doubt about this. The dream is still too distant for too many where a land of plenty. But we are far from perfect too. Many Californians are being priced out of housing healthcare and higher education. Too. Many workers are feeling the ever tightening squeeze of automation and wage stagnation. Too. Many children are growing up in poverty and starting school from behind in many ways in many places, we are simultaneously the richest and the poorest state kind of lays it out there, Scott. And I think many of the promises that have been made are sort of implicit in. What we just heard? He's in fact, said ironclad single payer to the nurses union. He did. But you know, he has also been a little more, shall we say realistic about that in recent months, he would like to make progress on that. But I think and I think. The nurses understand too that there isn't going to be single payer healthcare in California this year, or maybe even next year or the year after that. But they want to see some progress. And I think Newsome is committed to at least giving it a shot. What I think you're gonna see really that'll be the biggest difference between the outgoing Brown administration. And the Newsome administration is the focus on children. He has of course, for young children himself that in and of itself is a big optics different difference from Jerry Brown who does not have any kids. And we've seen those kids front and center over the weekend at various events that the governor elect his held me scrap the Newsom family moving to Sacramento, they are they think they struggled with that. Because they didn't want to uproot the kids from school in Marin, but they're going to be moving into the mansion Dan downtown Sacramento, I was talking to Gavin Newsom an hour or so ago, and he said he's only been in their once it's a little odd to be moving into a house that you barely know. But that's what they're going to be doing. I think even later today. Let me just ask a couple of things. That might distinguish him from his predecessor Jerry Brown. One thing that seems to be in the offing aside from the concern about childhood education and about community colleges in healthcare, and so forth is also an environmental concern because Jerry Brown was okay with fracking. He was okay. To a great extent with drilling. Not so clear that Gavin Newsom who's going to follow suit. Is it? Well, I think yeah. There's going to be certainly pressure on him from the so-called keep it in the ground lobby. They don't wanna see any oil extracted from California knocking Jerry Brown has taken a more, shall we say realistic perspective on that saying that look if we don't take it out of the ground people are still going to drive their cars. They're still going to be a demand for oil. It'll just be shipped in from other states, and that has its own environmental risks as well. So I think you may see this new governor back away from fracking a little bit. Maybe put more regulations on it or even it as they've done in some states. But I'm not sure that's going to be necessarily a top priority and the oil industry for all of its problems, and there are many environmentally speaking. It does provide a lot of jobs and a lot of revenue for counties, like, you know, Kern county, even LA county, some of those counties that you know, are really big and oil production. I didn't California's a second biggest oil producing state in the country. We can expect him to continue to be head of the resistance says. The New Yorker put it. Well, certainly in his speech today. We've seen excerpts of it. He is going to lay out a strong contrast between California, which is open to immigrants open to new ideas embracing diversity. He has found a pretty good foil in Donald Trump who is of course, extremely unpopular in California. But he's going to have to do more than that. And as Jerry Brown quickly figured out, you need the federal government at times, especially in a state like California, which is prone to one disaster or another. And so I would imagine he'll pick his battles. You know, you do have to pick up the phone sometimes and ask for an emergency declaration or emergency funding from the White House. So you don't want to you know, you don't wanna burn that bridge. I should say that his ex wife, Kimberly Guilfoil is also dating Donald Trump junior. So that might be a back channel into the Oval Office.

Well in Washington, congress moving medical marijuana protection. Forward for veterans of your veteran. You can smoke pot perhaps. Let's get the latest on this initiative. Joining us live NBC radio correspondent, Mike Bauer. What's the story with this Mike we had Joe that was the plan? Yeah. There was supposed to allow military veterans to use medical marijuana in states where it's legal. But unfortunately that Bill was killed by congress in June. The Senate had passed a Bill to fund the VA that included an amendment that would not allow the VA to punish doctors for recommending medical marijuana. So the house. Pass their own Bill to fund the VA when they did that they did not include the amendment to prevent punishing doctors. But there was still hope because there was a committee that was created to create this final Bill. Combining the bills passed by the house and Senate that would include the amendment, however when congress released the final version of the Bill on Monday that amendment allowing doctors to recommend medical marijuana was removed. And the reason they're saying that all happen that had to do with the language that was language in the house. Republican leaders version that they did not like they didn't like one in the Senate. So they decided that they were going to kind of have this discussion a panel tasked to merge the proposals together, but those people who were responsible to do that opted to not include the cannabis provision in the final legislation is not the first time it happened. It also happened back in two thousand sixteen and again, they're saying it was a language issue. That's caused this all to blame here in New York. You just smoke. It. You won't get arrested. Doesn't matter. That seems to be the case. So the fears is though you're looking at veterans as well as Democrats hoping to sort of take over the house and Senate in November. So they can get these protections put into a law. Good NBC radio. Correspondent Mike Bauer. Thank you. Mike.
