🇦🇹 Correction: Some studious readers pointed out that we mistakenly wrote Australia rather than Austria in yesterday’s story about a man who had the wrong leg amputated. Mea culpa, dear reader. Thank you for the kind correction.

Florida is the first state to fine social media companies who ban politicians. Governor Ron DeSantis signed this bill into law on Monday.
The governor said that this offers a “guaranteed protection against the Silicon Valley elites.” This is in direct response to former President Trump getting booted from Twitter, Facebook and YouTube after the January 6 Capitol riots. Under this new bill, these companies would be fined $250,000 per day for banning state-wide political candidates but would face lower charges for local candidates. It also makes it illegal to prevent news outlets from posting to their own platforms.
This is the first bill of its kind to be signed into law but Texas is working on a similar version. The bill will likely be challenged by higher courts.

29. That is how many goals Cristiano Ronaldo scored this season, making him the first player to score the most goals in one season in three different leagues: Premier League, La Liga and Series A.
10,000. That is how many hungry goats will help prevent forest fires in California by eating up dry grasses that could exacerbate wildfire spread.
49%. That is how many voters support Senator Bernie Sanders’ proposal to stop the sale of $735 million worth of weapons to Israel.
100. That is how many trees a man in the Ozarks had cut down to improve his view of the lake. They were not on his property and now the town is investigating. “We don’t take things like this lightly. The tops of the trees look like something out of the Lorax,” said one local authority.
In Texas, the law soon may allow residents to carry guns without a license. The state’s Republican congress approved this bill on Monday and it will head to Governor Greg Abbott to sign.
The governor has said that he supports the bill. It would allow anyone over the age of 21 to carry a gun without a license as long as they are not banned from gun-owning by federal law. The authors of the bill argue that current licensing requirements in Texas are onerous and infringe on Texans’ Second Amendment rights.
In Texas, it is already legal to carry a rifle without a license. The National Rifle Association, predictably, supports the new bill, calling it the “most significant pro-Second Amendment measure in Texas history.”
Portland v. Homeless
Homeless people have joined a class-action lawsuit against the city of Portland. They claim that the city’s contractors have been illegally discarding their possessions when they clear out homeless camps for construction projects.
Oregon law requires the city to collect and retain all property that is “recognizable as belonging to a person and that has apparent use.” Those items are to be stored in a warehouse for 30 days before they can be discarded. The suit says that the city has not followed these laws, leaving people with close to nothing with literally nothing.
The four named plaintiffs are not asking for money. They are asking the city to change its policies about collecting homeless people’s possessions.
Poison Control call centers are busier since cannabis products have become widely available. A report by the medical journal JAMA showed that these calls jumped between 2017 and 2019.
The majority of the calls came from medical facilities on behalf of patients, not from patients’ homes.
Most of the calls related to cannabis products, not cannabis smoking. Edibles, tinctures, teas, things like that. A concerning number of calls concerned patients under 10 years old. You gotta put your weed products higher on the shelf, folks!
