The Crossville City Council voted 3-2 to approve a resolution that rescinds a contract to sell city property to Crossville Shooting Sports Park, Incorporated. Mayor Pro-tem JH Graham requested the resolution and noted a section in the contract that would allow the City an out if there was public objection. About 6 households and several property owners from the Albert Frye Road area began speaking out about the proposed park earlier in March after a contract had been signed. Council members Danny Wyatt, Pamala Harris and Mayor Pro-tem Graham voted in favor of rescinding, while Mayor Mayberry and councilmember Scot Shanks voted against. Mayberry added that too much effort had already been put forth by city employees just to toss it away at the last minute. The proposed shooting park first appeared on the council agenda in June of 2015.
A Tennessee lawmaker says his bill that would legalize medical marijuana is dead for this year's legislative session.
Republican Rep. Jeremy Faison says there's currently not enough support in the Senate for the change.
Faison's bill would have let people use prescribed marijuana to treat a variety of ailments, from cancer to post-traumatic stress disorder.
It also would have allowed 50 grow operations in Tennessee, with the first 15 in distressed areas.
On Tuesday, the Cosby lawmaker helped kill a separate resolution that he says would've pigeonholed Tennessee into waiting for additional U.S. Food and Drug Administration action.
Faison said some lawmakers feared their constituents would vote against them for supporting medical marijuana. He contended there will be a greater consequence for opponents because of positive polling for medical marijuana.
