Five Minutes Five Issues: Yemen Rule, MI Home Grow, DNA Database, Legal Hemp, Free Speech

By Adam Dick - December 16, 2018 at 08:37AM

A new episode of Five Minutes Five Issues is posted. You can listen to it, and read a transcript, below. You can also find previous episodes of the show at Stitcher, iTunes, YouTube, and SoundCloud.

Listen to the new episode here:

The indefinite retention of thousands of DNA profiles from people who are acquitted or never charged violates the California Constitution, which affords both a right to privacy and a right against unlawful searches and seizures that are specifically aimed at protecting people from the government’s overbroad retention of personal information.
Issue four.

In last week’s episode of Five Minutes Five Issues, I said to expect soon congressional approval of the farm bill (HR 2) containing hemp farming legalization. This week, the US House of Representatives and Senate voted to approve that farm bill. Expect President Donald Trump to sign the bill into law this month.

Issue five.

Years back, I was a plaintiff in a lawsuit challenging speech restrictions of the University of Texas at Austin.

On Thursday, a lawsuit was brought against the university challenging other UT speech restrictions. Jacob Sullum reports at Reason that the broad and vague speech restrictions targeting speech perceived as offensive, biased, uncivil, or rude are applied generally by the university and particularly for dormitories and UT’s internet access and email system. Also challenged is UT’s Campus Climate Response Team that Sullum writes “encourages students to file a report whenever they hear or read anything that offends them,” whether on campus or off campus. Similar speech restrictions have been adopted at other universities.

Hopefully, UT will back down this time as it did years back.

That’s a wrap.
