As someone who followed the Raich decision very carefully and doesn't callously dismiss anti-Prohibition initiatives like many on the left are wont to do as being a fringe pet issue of "druggies", I was struck by the wide reporting of the Raich decision and how, almost universally, the outpouring of editorial opinion was FOR allowing medical mj for sick people and AGAINST the DEA, Controlled Substances Act, ONDCP, GWB and the rest of the hardliners.
