You probably missed it, but medical marijuana is now legal in Missouri. Our new medical marijuana law, which was approved by voters in the November election, took effect on December 6. Some state residents, however, may have to decide between using the drug under a doctor’s prescription and being able to put food on their table.

At Missouri Farm Bureau’s Annual Meeting in early December, rural Missourians voiced strong support for initiative petition reform, broadband expansion, making renewable energy project taxation more equitable and alleviating veterinarian shortages.
It’s December, well almost, and that means there are lots of Christmas activities being planned throughout the area. Make sure you take part in some of your local events that are being planned over the next few weeks.
When you get done feasting on Thursday and making your plan of attack for “Black Friday” and “Cyber Monday,” be sure to keep in mind a couple of other special days coming up that can make a big impact on our local community. Make sure you participate in “Small Business Saturday” and “Giving Tuesday.”
