You mean to tell me that a Governor can ban FDA approved medication?

Pray tell, a Governor of one of these United States, can take it upon him/herself to ban a medication in their state? Especially using the premise of "protecting" their citizens?
It should be relatively easy for anyone to explain why this action was not taken on Oxycodone and OxyContin.
I anxiously wait for explanation and responses.

I went in for my second colonoscopy today, at age 60

I am a Black man and considered higherish risk to colon cancer. My physician, of many years, takes no guff and is on the same page as far as extending our time together, if I like it or not.
I was familiar with most of the staff at the endocrine center from ten years prior, a lot of Dad jokes and a nurse with the same name as my granddaughter, a really rare name, and the doctor performing the procedure with the same name as my paternal grandmother, also super rare.
Anyway, no immediate bad news. found a polyp that was successfully removed and sent for biopsy. It was suggested that I set up an appointment with a urologist because a concern of my prostate, my blood sugar was a little high and my blood pressure was elevated. All of which pointed to necessary changes to my diet, high fiber low fat, more veggies, all of which I have been doing for awhile.
So, as I wait for the biopsy results to come in, I strongly suggest if you are over fifty, or even close, get the colonoscopy. I did this on my two vacation days. (because we don't have sick days at my job either)
