Michigan Gov Whitmer [D] Bans Many Stores From Selling Seeds, Home Gardening Supplies, Calls Them “Not Essential" - objects to protests and may extent lockdown
Michigan Gov Threatens to Extend Lockdown because of Protests
4-15-20, Protesters, led by the Michigan Conservative Coalition, stormed the Michigan Capitol demanding an end to the stay-at-home order, which they claimed was infringing on their personal liberties. Recently Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer (D) said during interview with MSNBC host Rachel Maddow that the protests are the “kind of irresponsible action that puts us in this situation where we might have to actually think about extending stay-at-home orders, which is supposedly what they are protesting."
4-17-20, Forbes.com -- With the coronavirus quickly becoming a new normal, home gardening is taking off, as more and more Americans start to grow their own fruits and vegetables. But in Michigan, many stores have been barred from selling seeds, soils, plants, and other gardening supplies.
Undoubtedly, Michigan is in crisis: The state topped 28,000 confirmed novel coronavirus cases Wednesday, while COVID-19 has killed at least 1,921 people. Like other executives, the governor has broad authority to act during emergencies. But those actions can’t be arbitrary and irrational; they must have a “real and substantial relation” to protect public health. Source
Michigan Gov. Whitmer Bans Residents From Buying Garden Veggie & Fruit Seeds
4-17-20 Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer is coming under fire for an expansive new order to lock down state residents during the coronavirus, forbidding anyone from buying seeds or plants and banning gatherings "of any size." The Democrat governor's extension of Michigan's stay-at-home order also outlaws residents from traveling "between residences" ...

Last week, Michigan Gov Whitmer ordered all stores larger than 50,000-square feet to cordon off their garden centers and plant nurseries, blocking customers from shopping in those sections through April 30. “If you're not buying food or medicine or other essential items, you should not be going to the store,” Whitmer said when announcing her order.
The shutdown follows an executive order from last month that’s been widely interpreted by many in the industry as banning greenhouses, independent garden centers, and plant nurseries from selling to the public, as part of a larger crackdown on activities deemed “not necessary to sustain or protect life.” (Curiously, the state’s list of “not necessary” items doesn’t include lottery tickets and liquor, which stores can continue to sell.)
During a press conference on Monday, 4/13/20, the Gov Whitmere readily conceded that her executive orders have led to “confusion,” [it's always our fault that we're too stupid to understand what the politicians do!] with residents “just trying to figure out why you can buy a lottery ticket and not seeds.” “I recognize that there a lot of passionate gardeners in Michigan and I’ve heard from a lot of you,” she added. “Right now, my immediate concern is to try and keep everyone in Michigan safe.” More here
