Bush Asks Supreme Court to Okay Attacks on Medical Marijuana

The Bush administration yesterday asked the U.S. Supreme Court to reverse a federal appellate court ruling protecting medical marijuana patients and caregivers from prosecution by the federal government. If the high court agrees to take the case, the safety and well-being of tens of thousands of patients in states that have enacted medical marijuana laws will hang in the balance.

What's the problem here? Well, it's simple: the Federal Government has no authority to regulate drugs, medical or recreational. Of course, that hasn't stopped them. In only a few short years we have gone from Prohibition (which required a Constitutional Amendment, and which was then properly repealed) to a never-ending War on Drugs with absolutely no Constitutional basis.

The 9th Circuit said that wouldn't fly in their district, and quite properly so, when the major state therein (California) has passed a medical marijuana law. (The 9th Circus isn't my favorite court by a long shot, but sometimes they do get it right).

And the Federal Government wants the Supreme Court to overrule the 9th Circuit and say that they can lock up those damn drug fiends once and for all!
