Gonzales v. Raich

Instapundit doesn't like it and the libertarian right is all up in arms. However, I think the States' Rights horse is out of the barn. The Civil War settled that issue. I wouldn't mind marijuana replacing alcohol as a legal recreational drug, provided that it doesn't have more drawbacks than what it replaces, but if it is claimed as a medicine, it ought to be under the jurisdiction of the FDA, not subject to a piecemeal regulation by the states. I'd also like more than just anecdotal evidence that it really has medicinal benefit.
