Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer Bans Seed Sales as “Non-Essential,” But Allows Lottery Ticket Sales


Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer is under fire for labeling fruit and vegetable seeds as “non-essential.”

This means that families in Michigan are unable to purchase seeds and thereby unable to grow their own food during the COVID-19 pandemic.

However, lottery ticket sales in the state have been permitted to continue.

Whitmer, a Democrat, has even banned Michigan residents from going to their own vacation houses.

That’s right: a family that primarily lives in Detroit, for example, would be unable to go to their vacation home in a less densely populated city elsewhere in the state.

Many have criticized Whitmer of abusing her power as governor.

See some social media photos that Michigan residents have that show the seeds that are currently unavailable for sale:
