My friend once said "Marijuana will be legal once they figure out a way to prove intoxication immediately like alcohol so they can make money off DUI's"
I think that with other reasons are true, the government will not legalize Marijuana just because you want them to, they could give a rats ass about what you think or want, if Marijuana is legalized there must be a lot profit for "them" for it to be legalized.
In Criminology courses they told us to say why DARE is a good drug program, after my research I'm the only one that had balls to say it INCREASED drug use in kids participating in the DARE program backed by research from the government and other "credible" sources by legal standards while everyone else said it decreased drug use without any research whatsoever, I got a C and almost everyone who supported it got an A, and I got an A in every other class I took that year, 95%+.
Do whatever you want as long as you don't harm other people, if you want to harm yourself that's up to you too, no one has the right to tell you, threaten you by confinement or force you by confinement to do what they think you should do, you were born free only governed by natural laws and you will die free governed by natural laws, follow only man made laws that serve to better yourself and others, dismiss ones that don't or infringe on your freedom.
This is clearly against Amendment X, but just like firearms and concealed permits, where it's a state thing, or should be, congress says it's federal because it can affect commerce....
"The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people."
Gonzales v. Raich. In this case, a California woman sued the Drug Enforcement Administration after her medical marijuana crop was seized and destroyed by Federal agents. Medical marijuana was explicitly made legal under California state law by Proposition 215; however, marijuana is prohibited at the federal level by the Controlled Substances Act. Even though the woman grew the marijuana strictly for her own consumption and never sold any, the Supreme Court stated that growing one's own marijuana affects the interstate market of marijuana, citing the Wickard v. Filburn decision. The theory was that the marijuana could enter the stream of interstate commerce, even if it clearly wasn't grown for that purpose and it was unlikely ever to happen. It therefore ruled that this practice may be regulated by the federal government under the authority of the Commerce Clause.
Another controversial technique used by Congress has been to deny federal funding to states when certain state laws do not conform to federal guidelines. For example, the national 55 mph (89 km/h) speed limit and the national 21-year drinking age were imposed through this method; the states would lose highway funding if they refused to pass such laws. See e.g. South Dakota v. Dole, 483 U.S. 203 (1987).
