There seems to be a little debate about medical cannabis, but i think the college republicans are ignoring a crucial aspect: federalism.
I don't know about you guys but i like my federal government small and the drug war has led to anything but. Do you guys know about Ashcroft v. Raich? It has put forth the question, "Whether the Controlled Substances Act exceeds Congress’s power under the Commerce Clause as applied to the intrastate cultivation and possession of marijuana for purported personal 'medicinal' use or to the distribution of marijuana without charge for such use."
Personally, i don't care how opposed you guys are to smoking weed; but come on, are you going to let that be the excuse the government uses to completely disregard the commerce clause? It seems to me that a few people in the comments section agree with this William F. Buckley/libertarian take on the war on drugs.
And for the record, Victor, marijuana is not a pain killer. That's what opiates do. Marijuana is used as an appetite stimulant and to suppress nausea. That it actually works is a medical question which really isn't all that controversial anymore.
