Cannabis and the Constitution Part 5

Tuesday, July 9, 2013 5:24:33 PM Etc/GMT+5

As you’ve learned, the Supreme Court slowly murdered states’ rights over the course of 181 years.  In 2005, the Supreme Court finally pulled the trigger and put to rest any doubts about the federal government’s power under the Commerce Clause.  How the Department of Justice came to ban not only bongs made and used at home but also cannabis is all right here. The seminal case of the legality of growing and using marijuana for strictly personal use as sanctioned under state law is Gonzales v. Raich, 454 U.S. 1 (2005).

Cannabis and the Constitution Part 2

Sunday, March 24, 2013 9:51:59 PM Etc/GMT+5

As discussed in Part 1, the criminalization or legalization of bongs and medical marijuana was entrusted to the states as the Constitution did not expressly grant the federal government police powers.  As a consequence of entrusting the states with all of this power to legislate and enforce laws as they saw fit, differing laws between states had a detrimental effect on interstate commerce.
