Spokane did not 'ban' anything. However, the City Council decided that the City government would not buy neonicotinoids. Any city resident or company can still do whatever they choose legally.
In a second issue on Monday, the council voted 5-2 to ban city purchase and use of a class of insecticides called neonicotinoids, which are suspected of harming honeybees. The ban does not apply to private use.

BUT, the city government does not even run the city parks ....
The measure does not affect the parks department, which is governed by the Park Board. However, the parks director told council members that neonicotinoids are not used in city parks, council members said.
The practical effect of this is about zero, unless you count headlines.
:rolleyes:

This isnt a democracy, its a republic. We elect representatives to make decisions for us so we arnt voting on something every week or day. Those Representatives are supposed to vote in accord to what the people who elected them want. When they don't we have the power to replace them with someone who will (See the 2010 congressional and senate races after the ACA was pus.... er passed)
