Medical Marijuana decision

Too bad we don’t have more doubting Thomases on the Supreme Court. Here is a portion of Justice Clarence Thomas’s dissent:
“Respondents Diane Monson and Angel Raich use marijuana that has never been bought or sold, that has never crossed state lines, and that has had no demonstrable effect on the national market for marijuana. 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.”
The Commerce Clause has enabled activist judges to make up the rules as we go along. So much for the Constitution.
