Medical Marijuana and the Federal War on Drugs

In the 2000 campaign for president, George W. Bush said that the federal government should not interfere with the medical marijuana policies of the several states. Like so many other promises, he went back on his word and has closed down medical marijuana facilities permitted by state governments.

This is an outrage. The federal government has no constitutional authority to interfere with state drug policies. When the federal government outlawed alcohol, it required a constitutional amendment to do so. Nonetheless it has assumed the legal authority to wage its "War on Drugs."

Badnarik speaks on the Drug War, and he's right. Making people understand that the War on Drugs is unConstitutional is difficult enough, but making the general public understand that it is against their best interests as well is nearly impossible. Propaganda is the name of the game, and the government has an unlimited budget and compacent allies in the media.
