The Chron has an article about how even thought the Supremes said that Medical Marijuana Laws passed by the States can't shield people from the Long Arm of the The Law, that it most likely won't lead to an increase in drug busts.
"The reality is, we don't have the time or resources to do anything other than going after large-scale traffickers and large-scale growers," said McGregor Scott, the U.S. attorney for the state's eastern district in Sacramento. "We have had cases where there have been claims of medical marijuana, but they involved hundreds and hundreds of plants -- not somebody growing a couple plants in their back yard."And that, Internets, is the problem. We are once again in the worst of all possible worlds. There is a law on the books that should get enforced so people can see Grannies with cancer doing Perp Walks and maybe a bit of sanity could get injected into the system. Instead we get a really bad law that will be used at the discression of Roberto Gonzales and his minions to harass those they deem to be against America.
