After the Supreme Court decision earlier this month, John Walters:
“Today’s decision marks the end of medical marijuana as a political issue.”
Not so fast, John.
Yesterday, Rhode Island legislature passed their own medical marijuana bill. It passed the House last week 52-10 and the Senate yesterday 33-1. It looks veto-proof.
John, as long as the administration blocks the standard scientific methods for approving medical marijuana, it will continue to be political, and nothing that you or the Supreme Court or Congress says can stop that.
Update: Jacob Sullum has more, including a discussion on the reason some people use different counts for the number of states supporting medical marijuana.
