Thin Reed For Weed

I was prepared to fulminate about today's Supreme Court ruling in Gonzales v. Raich, the "medical marijuana" case. Thankfully, MaxedOutMama already's posted it; I agree with her reasoning throughout, so surf away.

Only a single addition: only one Justice of the Supreme Court voted the proper way in both Lawrence and Raich. He's my favorite Justice, for his opinions, for his reasoning, and for the fact that he's a smart, witty and enjoyable man (I was fortunate enough to meet and talk with the Justice twice). When Rehnquist retires, I hope the next chief is Clarence Thomas.
