SUPREME COURT STRIKES DOWN MEDICAL MARIJUANA LAWS

The Supreme court recently struck down the Medical Marijuana laws in California and other states. I feel this was a bad thing because now the seriously ill will be busted for possession. Ironically, those justices who hypocritically voted to uphold the laws were the farthest right wing extemists on America's bench. Most likely at the urging of the cancer-ridden W. Rehnquist, who probably «burns one» now and then. I feel all Cannabis shoud be legalized; it is safer than both tobacco and alcohol.

The "Supream" Court?

That's not a typo, that's just plain misspelling.

What was that exalted GPA again?
I guess you tend to confirm this

http://www.collegeboard.com/prod_downloads/about/news_info/cbsenior/yr2003/pdf/2003_TOTALGRP_PRD.pdf

which gives, on page 12, the SAT scores of various majors, and shows that Education majors are...well, they're not the brightest stars in the firmament.

And my understanding is that the SCOTUS didn't "strike down" any state's MedMJ laws...they just confirmed the supremacy of federal law over the laws of the states.

I think the seriosuly ill should just switch to harder drugs, such as LSD or MDMA. Lord knows they deserve a good time for all their suffering.

And speaking of Marijuana legalization, here's my idea:

Tax breaks for Republican pot smokers!

Conservatives love tax breaks, and this could make smoking up popular again.

it's like if someone spells something wrong then you have to disregard their point entirely?

I could say it in the Queen's English that an impassioned voice won't reveal spelling errors, and that the intent of communication is to get the point across.

So quit pretending that he didn't.

Howie I wonder how you found my blog, too..

To rjennar,

i agree with you matey. that's the problem with most people. They think that if you can't say it right, than your idea ain't right. Something like, 'if you ain't a celebrity, then you ain't worth shit'.

and btw rjennar, howie is also a 'part-time bot' who goes around sticking the following : 'nice blog 'xxxx'; i too have a blog, a very progressive one'. sounds familiar? well, maybe he's shuffled his words around a bit now that i started kicking his ass about it. And maybe he's even started to actually read others' blogs and including a comment or two. well, good for him. there's hope for him yet. Anyway, his blog isn't too bad. Enlightening? well, depends on your state of mind. But a good place to check out the opinions of the common people. If you want analytical and intellectual stuff. This blog ain't it. (neither is mine...but i didn't claim it to be)

oh, and just to intro to you, 'whisperer' is a prostitute in career and a pussy by nature. She basically doesn't know how to 'put her work aside' and engage others in conversations about anything else but sex...which is what she's talking about above.

I find it laughable that you insist that weed is, "safer than both tobacco and alcohol."

Are you sure about that? What would an education major know about the effects of THC on human tissue? Are you sure that you aren't just giving anecdotal evidence here Howie?

Another point here is the rather irrational notion that the "Conservatives" on the bench have some how tempered their "stand" on illicit drug use because of Rehnquist's cancer. Where is your proof. Do you have a quote cited somewhere in your argument?

You like hemp, it seems. Fine. Hardly anyone cares. Should it be legalized? Yea, probably. Has the illegalization of it curbed use or behavior of those who want to use it? Hell no.

The problem here Howie is that you have yet to learn to argue your points in a salient manner.

Stick to education. You haven't a chance in the real world!

Howie, put down the bong long enough to let your head clear, man.

The dissenting justices wrote their opinion on the basis of the Constitution's interstate commerce clause not encompassing medicinal MJ. It had nothing to do with what they thought about using weed as a palliative treatment. They held that the Federal government didn't have the authority to interfere in a states rights issue. If you want to discuss a Court's finding, kindly acquaint yourself with it first.

Point of order.

The Supreme Court did not strike down the State laws. The Supreme Court held that Federal law, which did not allow those State laws, controlled.

Federal law can be changed. So it is a legislative issue, something the Left is very uncomfortable with I hear.

As for the conservatives being the dissenters, that should not be a surprise. The issue was really the bredth of Congress' power under the commerce clause. It is regularly conservative judges that seek to limit such power, and liberal judges that want to throw the Constitution of limited federal powers in the garbage. And in this case, that is what the liberal judges did.
