Supreme Court Rules Against Medicinal Use of Marijuana

"WASHINGTON (June 6) -- Federal authorities may prosecute sick people who smoke pot on doctors' orders, the Supreme Court ruled Monday, concluding that state medical marijuana laws don't protect users from a federal ban on the drug..."

This is what happens when the Supreme Court is stacked with right-wing neo-cons who ignore medical science and react instead to the knee-jerk desires of a few zealous loudmouths who think they have a right to force their moral viewpoints on others.
If people want to use a product that grows out of the soil on their own property, that should be their business. If they want to use it to alleviate the pain caused by serious illnesses, they should be blessed, not prosecuted.
Our phony, lying president has smoked plenty of pot in his day, according to witnesses, and that was for recreational, not medicinal purposes.
I'm sick of the hypocrisy.
What people do in the privacy of their homes is nobody's business, unless it harms others.
I am starting to think anarchy is preferable to theocracy.
