Don't bogart the Cheetos, Justice Thomas
Clarence Thomas, dissenting in today's Supreme Court decision upholding the federal government's right to prosecute users of medical marijuana, courtesy of TheAgitator.com:
If Congress can regulate this under the Commerce Clause, then it can regulate virtually anything--and the Federal Government is no longer one of limited and enumerated powers.
Certainly no evidence from the founding suggests that "commerce" included the mere possession of a good or some purely personal activity that did not involve trade or exchange for value. In the early days of the Republic, it would have been unthinkable that Congress could prohibit the local cultivation, possession, and consumption of marijuana.
