...enable us to BASK in financial sunshine. [wink]4 months ago
Jan Brewer is just stupid enough to be dangerous. This state will never progress beyond 1950 as long as she is Governor. We must rid ourselves of people like her, and Ar-piehole, Pearce, and his good buddy, JT Ready-wannabe Juggernaut, to begin to help the majority of citizens in this state. The Republicans are a mold on the face of Arizona that, once cleaned off, will enable us to ask in financial sunshine.4 months ago
The main issue in this whole debacle has been that, even though voter approved, Medical Marijuana is illegal under Federal law. Article VI, Section 2, of the U.S. Constitution is known as the Supremacy Clause because it provides that the "Constitution, and the Laws of the United States … shall be the supreme Law of the Land." It means that the federal government, in exercising any of the powers enumerated in the Constitution, must prevail over any conflicting or inconsistent state exercise of power.
According to the Supremacy Clause, no state shall enact any law that is contradictory to Federal law. This has been the law of the land since the 1930s. Prior to that the government's position was that the Tenth Amendment, which provides that the powers not delegated to the federal government are reserved to the states or to the people, would be used.[smile]9 months ago
Drug addicts will always try to justify their use of mind-altering, mood-changing substances because they are not mentally strong enough to deal with reality unless they have a crutch.

People have been getting it forever, so what is so different now?May 31, 2011
