How can "the man" do this??
    #4271310 - 06/08/05 12:53 PM (12 years, 5 months ago)

WASHINGTON Jun 6, 2005 ? People who smoke marijuana because their doctors recommend it to ease pain can be prosecuted for violating federal drug laws, the Supreme Court ruled Monday, overriding medical marijuana statutes in 10 states.

The court's 6-3 decision was filled with sympathy for two seriously ill California women who brought the case, but the majority agreed that federal agents may arrest even sick people who use the drug as well as the people who grow pot for them.

Justice John Paul Stevens, an 85-year-old cancer survivor, said the court was not passing judgment on the potential medical benefits of marijuana, and he noted "the troubling facts" in the case. However, he said the Constitution allows federal regulation of homegrown marijuana as interstate commerce.

The Bush administration has taken a hard stand against state medical marijuana laws, but it was unclear how it would respond to the new prosecutorial power. Justice Department spokesman John Nowacki would not say whether prosecutors would pursue cases against individual users.

In a dissent, Justice Sandra Day O'Connor said the court's "overreaching stifles an express choice by some states, concerned for the lives and liberties of their people, to regulate medical marijuana differently."

The women who brought the case expressed defiance.

"I'm just going to keep doing what I'm doing. I don't really have a choice but to, because if I stop using cannabis, I would die," said Angel Raich of Oakland, Calif., who suffers from ailments including scoliosis, a brain tumor, chronic nausea, fatigue and pain. She says she smokes marijuana every few hours.

Diane Monson, an accountant who lives near Oroville, Calif., has degenerative spine disease and grows her own marijuana plants. "I'm going to have to be prepared to be arrested," she said.

The ruling does not strike down California's law, or similar ones in Alaska, Colorado, Hawaii, Maine, Montana, Nevada, Oregon, Vermont and Washington state. However, it may hurt efforts to pass laws in other states because the federal government's prosecution authority trumps states' wishes.





What the hell these people are in real pain and have let them use MJ for many years to help with their pain and nw they just want o take that away??? whats wrong with them?

The ruling won't affect much.

but symbolically, it sucks - both for the medicinal marijuana issue, and states rights in general

Actually It doesn't change much at all. The Federal Government has been arresting sick people for using their medicine for a long time in California. They bust the Buyers clubs and arrest the owners and also bust larger scale grows for medical users. The thing that sucks the most about it is that it affirms that the federal goverment doesn't give a shit about states rights. I mean even the fact that they don't give funding to states unless they enforce a seat belt law and keep certain speed limits. Even petty shit like that. Gun control registration. Fuck them. It seems The Man does what The Man want's. Just keep your grows personal and discreet and you shouldn't have a problem.

Really, all this means is that SCOTUS believes, rightly so, that the marijuana being grown in california is related to interstate commerce. I know that I was getting bud from South Cali, and i'm in PA.
