Being Liberal and a Progressive in a RED STATE is not an easy thing these days. I started this blog to vent my frustrations on our lives being taken over by right wing conservatives with their propaganda machines. I have also learned an important lesson in the last year, it is that reading is the only way to get real information, you cannot depend on the news you see on TV.

SCOTUS Overturns States Rights on "Medical Marijuana"

How sad:

Federal authorities may prosecute sick people whose doctors prescribe marijuana to ease pain, the Supreme Court ruled Monday, concluding that state laws don't protect users from a federal ban on the drug.

The decision is a stinging defeat for marijuana advocates who had successfully pushed 10 states to allow the drug's use to treat various illnesses.

Awwww, how sad. The Supreme Court says you can't break the law, even though you're sick. What is this world coming to, when you can't even break the law?

And by the way, I became more socially conscious during my law school Constitutional Law classes. So you're a little off about my age. But I am curious as to what exactly gave you the impression that I would "have to wait a few years to vote." Is it because I don't live my life in constant fear of our government?

Or, is it because my screen name is youlikedudes? Could it be that you are building a straw man to knock down, rather than dealing with the real issues? Are you so different, then, from the other politicians you so harshly criticize on this blog?
