Letter to the editor


Voice of the people
Public Involvement
We have just witnessed the power of public
involvement. A small group of citizens with a
concern for the public welfare, began meeting
about three months ago to study drug addiction
in our area. Little did we know what an education
we would receive in a short period of time. We
all were aware of marijuana, cocaine, heroin and
LSD from the DEA and other public outlets. The
real shock came when we were told that there
is a substance sold legally in some convenient
stores in our area to anyone no matter the age.
The name of the product is Kratom. This product
could be addictive and even deadly. The product
was researched on the internet and from some
personal testimony by our group. Local stores
were surveyed and the product was found to be
readily available and in some cases offered for
sale by the clerk in the store. To say we were
shocked is an understatement. After some
research, the committee drafted an ordnance to
ban this substance. This ordnance was presented
to the board of supervisors and city council for
their approval. The city approved this ordnance,
a move to make our community better and our
children safer. The county is asking for a public
hearing before they decide.
I hope this will show everyone the power of
public involvement to improve our community. I
also hope the state of Mississippi will follow Co-
lumbus’ city council and call for a state-wide ban.
Let’s band together to make Columbus and

However, Mayor Rob-

of the council on Tues-

freeze for not installing
a previously approved

Donna Hankee, a For-

approached the council
to ask why the speed
hump, approved in June,
still isn’t in place.
Smith, along with
Gavin and Box, all told
her that even previously
approved speed humps
would not be funded until
after this June, when the

concern, but we can’t

Smith said. “There are
