Students lose in federal court…

Via the DARE Generation Diary

… on Friday, a federal judge granted the Bush administration’s motion to dismiss Students for Sensible Drug Policy’s lawsuit challenging the constitutionality of the law that strips financial aid from college students with drug convictions

Not that huge a surprise to me — the courts have been giving broad deference to the federal government, particularly when it comes to anything with money attached to it (and particularly in the area of “drug war exceptions” to the constitution).
As SSDP properly notes, now it’s up to Congress, and we have to make a difference there. SSDP has made it easy to start. They’ll also be working hard in Washington for their national lobby day on November 17. Join them.
