A lot of people have a problem with what the government is considering essential and I get the frustration, something that isn't essential for one person may be essential for another. But one common complaint is why are Liquor and Marijuana Stores considered essential?

Yesterday, Dr. Brent Roussin said taking these services off the essential list could cause more harm than good with unintended consequences. These unintended consequences could put even more strain on the health care system. 

According to the Federal Governments website, addiction is classified as a Disease / Condition. It's sort of like if they were to say Insulin wasn't an essential item, when we all know it very much is.

Whenever I question what the Government is doing I always try to keep in mind that I am not an expert... I am a Radio Announcer.
