Hashish lounges want regulation change

I simply needed to remind your readers that Nevada, like Colorado, has an indoor-smoking regulation (NRS 202.2483) that prohibits smoking inside most eating places and locations of employment. That features marijuana. Though hashish consumption lounges (RN&R, February 2023) have been approved in 2021, the Nevada Legislature didn’t create an exception within the Nevada Clear Indoor Air Act (NCIAA) for smoking marijuana. Any statute or regulation inconsistent with the NCIAA is definitely null and void. It will be clever for native governments to oppose such institutions till the NCIAA is correctly amended.

Lithium mine a risk to atmosphere

I’m appalled at lack of concern for land, air, and life on the a part of the BLM (RN&R, March 2023). That (Thacker Move lithium mine web site) is the final of the broad open wild areas on this planet. It’s eternally misplaced each time a bull dozer touches it. How short-sighted can we and the BLM be? Who will care a few lithium battery in 300 years? — Dorothy Hudig, Reno.

Sheila Leslie’s return to RN&R

Welcome again to Sheila Leslie! (RN&R, March 2023) I’ve missed her clear-headed, insightful, and related feedback these previous few years. I completely agree with the final paragraph of this week’s article: Nevada youngsters earlier than one other tax break for Musk!

Thanks, Sheila! SO glad to see you again! Psychological well being is a seamless and regarding trigger. Thanks for bringing it to the forefront. – Linda Brown, Reno

Delight flag inappropriate at church

I say this primary: I don’t hate any group of individuals. To me hate is a really sturdy expression. That being stated, I discover it uncomfortable {that a} church (I’m an Evangelical Lutheran Church buildings of America member) claiming to be ‘all inclusive’ regardless of your life-style, would really feel the necessity to dangle a flag that particularly identifies one group (RN&R, March 2023).  These that aren’t a part of homosexual pleasure really feel discriminated towards. It will present solidarity to fly the ELCA flag or American flag. It actually comes right down to who meets/greets you if you stroll within the door.

BLM is mistaken to entice mustangs

To lure these horses with hay and water to entice them (RN&R March 2023) ought to be a federal offense and, the truth is, is — besides (that) these trappings have been carried out by the BLM, who has by no means carried out something to guard these horses. They’re beloved horses and managed humanely on the vary and ought to be returned intact in order that their genetics and households can proceed to thrive. Residents who don’t need horses of their yards ought to erect fences to maintain them out, not transfer to horse habitat and demand their removing.

Lee Thornton, Douglas County

It’s important to surprise about why somebody would transfer to an space with wildlife — after which need the wildlife gone. Could God forgive them; nobody else will. The wild horse advocates/volunteers labored tirelessly to redirect horses again to their vary. Disgrace on the BLM and people taking part.

Linda Reynolds, Reno

The BLM is aware of what it’s doing is mistaken, however the folks in energy have lengthy been corrupted by particular pursuits. This seize is unnecessary, merciless and inexcusable. Personal landowners can fence their property in the event that they object to the horses wandering onto their property. And no, horses usually are not “feral”, the species originated in North America. We people are the feral species on most lands occupied by wild horses.

– LuAnne Hedblom, Douglas County

Thanks for this text. I actually hope it will get the story on the market. I … have been following these horses through their advocates Fb web page for over 10 years. These horses assist to lift the profile of the Carson Valley and the encircling space. They convey in vacationers, and due to this fact convey enterprise for the communities. I really hope that the remaining horses shall be left to stay out their lives wild and free and so proceed to convey pleasure to their hundreds of Fb followers.

Mike Pence, cowardly politician

Mike Pence lastly stated in March 2023, “Historical past will decide Donald Trump” for his actions round January 6.

Solution to move the buck to historical past, Mike.

Mr. Pence couldn’t convey himself to supply even a soft-shoe public judgment about his boss’ conduct till over two years after January 6th, 2021. Not till the political winds have been beginning to blow in a unique path for Republicans.

In America we’ve a saying, “In case you see one thing, say one thing.” Meaning now, immediately, Mr. Pence, not two years later or down the highway a era or two. In his speech Pence didn’t encourage any authorized motion like prosecution, celebration censure, or disqualification from officeholding.

Individuals of conscience who love their nation ought to see Mr. Pence for what he’s, a politician, not a frontrunner. He lacks a conscience.
