state medical marijuana laws over-rule federal laws

CALIFORNIA: RULING ON MEDICAL MARIJUANA A federal appeals court ruled that a law outlawing marijuana may not apply to sick people with a doctor's recommendation in states that have medical marijuana laws. The United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit said prosecuting these medical marijuana users under a 1970 federal law was unconstitutional if the marijuana was not sold, transported across state lines or used for nonmedicinal purposes. The finding was a blow to the Justice Department, which argued that state medical marijuana laws were trumped by the Controlled Substances Act of 1970. Eight other states have laws similar to California's. (AP)

Even the 9th has to get one right.


--------------------
You cannot legislate the poor into prosperity by legislating the wealthy out of prosperity. What one person receives without working for another person must work for without receiving. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for that my dear friend is the beginning of the end of any nation. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it. ~ Adrian Rogers

yeah I think the courts are the only hope we have of ending prohibition. As long as the majority of voters buy into all the anti-drug propaganda, congress will never do shit about it. I think the Supreme Court is our only hope- I see a lot of similarity between Desegregation and ending prohibition.

peace, pot, and microdot!
