    The federal government are aliens, they are a few men in seats half way across the country that make decisions about how I should live my life, yes they do things more often than not in my favor positively, but very many times they act in ways that are very negative. They are very short sided in some of there actions.

    The original clause I speak of was meant to boost trade during the great depression, it has been proven now that restricting the sale of foreign goods in America actually prolonged the depression another 6-8 years. It is an abomination, and I have no way as a citizen to challenge this law in the book. Later on the clause was used to restrict the sale of drugs, which Nixon used because he was scared the counter culture would spread across America.

    I understand why Nixon did this, even Hunter S Thomas the famous hippy journalist noticed the counter culture created a generation of dead beats, degenerates and so on. He acted hastily to the drug problem in the united states, instead of trying to regulate it like what he should had done he created a all out drug war which is a failure which we throw millions to each year. If he had regulated marijuana, and eliminated the black market, we wouldn't be in this mess now.
    That means that the federal government is responsible for the depression ..
    Anyway I see that drug problem is being regulated by using the term "Medical", that would calm down the counters, maybe .

    But I do agree that Nixon could have done much better in the drugs issue, I think he was busy spying on Gerald Ford

    I am saying that FDR prolonged the depression a few more years with a bad decision, a decision that stripped states of there rights which we are still having trouble with to this day. What would had turned down the counter culture would of been regulation, something every god fearing hippy secretly fears about there weed. They don't want marijuana legalized, as an illegal substance it is easier obtainable, cheaper and unregulated, a drug dealer will sell to anyone even children.

    Nixon was a crook, did a few good things for America, but in all he was more worried with abroad than at home, he acted hastily to listened to much to his base in making his decision about creation of DEA. The PTA pushed him into a corner, and required him to make the DEA and restrict drug sale and possession. All presidents are crooks, I mean I can show you a hose of presidents that did things in the office and outside the office that were very questionable.

    As Lynard Skynard said, "Watergate does not really bother me". Being from outside the country, you probably do not know who that is, but it was a famous rock and roll band that had that line in one of there more famous songs.

    Well you have to think at this time was right after the explosion of counter culture in, right after about 1968, millions of young adults in America were experimenting with drugs a lot. Parents in there worried state that they were, over reacted, much like in the 20's, people overreacted to consumption of alcohol.

    I could go on for a long time about the problems in my state with marijuana, but I fear that would turn into a long boring process for you.

    It's medical purpose? Who determines that? A botonist? A chemist? A doctor?
    A politician?

    I choose none of the above. I'll determine what I can or cannot ingest or inhale.

    Of course it will. I don't think you'll find a single medication prescribed by a doctor that isn't misused--or at the very least not used in accordance with the prescription.

    Does that make the use morally wrong? Does that justify criminalizing that use? Not in my mind. Every person should have the right to make such decisions for themselves.

    Re: Medical Marijuana, will it be misused ?

    This may be a little off topic, but I also want to point out the potential benefits of legalizing marijuana as far as the "civil war" in Mexico goes. I think it's possible that if marijuana was regulated and taxed in America we would be taking a huge amount of money away from drug cartels throughout Latin America. Estimates I've looked at from a few economists said that the US would save about 7 billion dollars a year in litigation costs of marijuana related cases and would also generate over 6 billions dollars in taxed revenue.

    ...And it would also be a good stay at home job for a few people
    Be the change you wish to see in the world.
