Ways and Means Committee meets, passes resolutions

— In resolutions from the floor, Lewis Supervisor David Blades asked for a resolution concerning the banning for sale or consumption of substances that can be used to make synthetic marijuana.

“A new epidemic in this region is the use of synthetic marijuana,” Blades said. “38 states have taken action to control one or more of the chemicals used to create synthetic marijuana and I am requesting action at the state level restricting the use or sale of these products.”

Westport Supervisor Daniel Connell, who chairs the legislative committee, said that his group would start meeting after the regular monthly board meeting.

Chairman and Jay Supervisor Randall “Randy” Douglas said that he wanted to committee to look at specific topics that the county could focus on when talking to federal legislators.

“When we went down to Washington last year, we had a big list of issues and only a certain amount of time to meet with them,” Douglas said. “We want this committee to focus on some specific ideas or projects that we can really hit hard when we go down there this year.”
