Pot as Medicine: An Odd Decision

Can the cultivation and use of marijuana for noncommercial purposes solely within one state be construed as "interstate commerce?" Six members of the U.S. Supreme Court say yes. The other three say -- in effect -- that's nuts.

I'd say that 5 said yes (the liberals) - Scalia said - sorta in this case - two said, "no" and Thomas said - you are freaking crazy.

I don't think the decision was odd though - the liberals have for years been expanding (or trying to) the commerce clause.

Unfortunately, I have to agree with you on this one. I never thought I'd see the day when I would agree with Thomas on anything. Perhaps I better buy a lottery ticket and check what the weather is doing in Hell...
