    The Interstate Commerce Clause is one of the most abused, misused pieces of power the federal government wields. It needs to be severely limited in scope and power.

    Oh I know that's how things are run. It's just the abuse of Interstate Commerce really pisses me off. I agree that the federal government has business in interstate business, but the abuse is unforgivable.

    Re: Feds to issue new medical marijuana policy [edited]

    Are some people actually advocating that federal resources be used to arrest random medical pot smokers because the act of doing so goes against federal law?

    Typical
    It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion.

    What fools, holding the expectation that the President will enforce the law.

    Two questions: Do you support federal funds being used to arrest and prosecute cannabis users? Are you aware of the transactional cost associated with such policy?

    **note** If your response is yes to the first question, my following response will pertain to the painful misallocation of opportunnity costs.
