The Detroit Animal shelter recently decided to put a pause on its vaccination practices because apparently, they are not completing the protocols correctly and the people inspecting the vaccines are sometimes aloof to the situation at hand. Should Michigan provide more training for the vaccinations of these animals? How important is this for our community and our children? https://www.detroitnews.com/story/news/local/detroit-city/2019/10/16/detroits-animal-control-changes-vaccine-process-amid-state-review/3998901002/

Michigan ban on flavored vapes is over

The Michigan Court of Claims stopped the ban of flavored vapes Tuesday "issuing a preliminary injuction against the ban." The article claims that the ban of these falvored vapes would have taken too many businesses out of work and that the ban outweighs "the interest of the state in stopping youths from using the product." I found this article very interesting because there have been many vape realted deaths recently and the state decides to unban these vapes because too many people are going out of business.

Bill to let mental-health counselors keep practicing clears committee

“A low estimate is that 150,000 Michigan citizens would be without mental health services, and there are not enough of the other providers to go around to take up that slack,” Fortunately this bill passed and no mental health counselor will be loosing their license! What are your thoughts on LARA and how they went about solving this issue. Were their reasons for wanting to get the bill passed in favor of the people of Michigan or for their own benefit?

Homeless Marine veteran treks around Lake Michigan for suicide awareness

This article depicts how a homeless Marine vet, Travis Snyder, was able to raise awareness for suicisde prevention. On October 5th, Snyder began his 810 mile hike around Lake Michigan. Despite being homeless and having a kid, Snyder still was able to achieve this unbelievable task in order to fight for what he believes in- suicide prevention. What other ways can Michigan help with suicide prevention? What affect does Snyder's story have on your perspective of the topic?
