The Harrison City Council, on Thursday, agreed to support an ordinance allowing municipal police to enforce state regulations on medical marijuana use within city limits. Mayor Jerry Jackson says the vote was unanimous. A second reading is scheduled for Feb. 27 to allow for public comment.

 

On today's show, we preview a public mental health discussion about grief that has been curated specifically for minority communities. Plus, we find out more about a plan from the state Department of Health to improve access to HIV prevention services and treatments. And, we hear from advocates from the Northwest Arkansas Women's Shelter about the organization's expansion into Madison County.

While the Northwest Arkansas Women's Shelter provides services to people living in Washington, Benton, Madison and Carroll Counties, they have not had a physical presence in Madison County until now. The organization has hired an advocate who works out a satellite office at the county courthouse in Huntsville.

Pastor Clint Schnekloth of Good Shepherd Lutheran Church in Fayetteville brings us another book suggestion, and it covers plenty of ground. He's suggesting That All Shall Be Saved: Heaven, Hell and Universal Salvation by David Bentley Hart.
