Can you believe this crap?! Justice Scalia, of all people, voted that growing a miniscule amount of marijuana in your backyard, for medical purposes only, can expose you to the heavy hand of ham-fisted federal government regulation. What a load of garbage. This is why we lost control of the government of the first place. Let them regulate things that are well within the domain of the states and you will end up with an uber-government, one that knows what's "best" for you in every area of life.

Thomas summed it up pretty well the opening salvo of his 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‚Äďand the Federal Government is no longer one of limited and enumerated powers.

So, so true. I am still in shock about Scalia joining the commies on this one. You would think that voting with Ruth Bader Ginsburg would have given him pause. WTF!!!!
