Will the Conflict Surrounding Marijuana Ever Come to an End with Ever Encroaching Central Control of Our Lives?

There are many out there who think drug laws are black and white. Most people do not think the conflict surrounding marijuana ever come to an end with ever encroaching central control of our lives from Washington DC. If Uncle Sam says it’s legal, you can do morphine with a doctor recommendation, but according to the Federal Laws, marijuana is basically the Boogie Man. So if it is approved by a government bureaucrat, it is “good”, but if it is recommended by your doctor for things like cancer, pain, sleeplessness, stress, etc., it is pure “evil.” According to the continued conflict of the past and the present, it is highly unlikely that the conflicts that surround the use of marijuana will ever actually come to an end.

As a matter of fact, the intensity of the war on drugs, and advocates fighting for the rights of those with needs for medical marijuana continue to become more powerful all the time. As a personal injury lawyer, Michael Ehline, of Ehline Law Firm PC, deals with those suffering from post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), burning and sharp pain between their shoulder blades, loss of appetite, etc. Basically, says Ehline: “The Ehline Law Firm assists sufferers of chronic pain.” And, Ehline points out: “Prescription drugs like Vicodin, Valium, Morphine, etc., are highly addictive, prescription or not.”

Have The Courts Wrongly Have Invaded States Rights?

Ehline says that the courts got it wrong on state’s rights. “Prior to our 14th Amendment, and the War Between the States, each state was considered to be an individual “country” (Ehline says under the law, each state still is a sovereign country, but that the U.S. govt ignores this truth with the assistance of judge made laws.) The purpose of the Union, says Ehline, “was to for a united states to have an alliance when dealing primarily with [belligerent] foreign powers, and basic general welfare to connect the states with roads, for purposes of commerce and trade, such as roads and a military, to protect that free enterprise and trade routes.”


Would King George Be Proud of Washington DC?

Ehline says the current federal government resembles more of what “we fought against in the Revolution against the tyrant king”. Ehline says: “King George would have given his throne for a place in the Washington DC political establishment.” That being said, Ehline wants the courts to finally recognize that certain areas where the feds have decided to interfere, based upon post “Civil War” decisions, are “bad law”. Unfortunately, says Ehline, conservatives, who traditionally support state’s rights, are so “anti drug”, they side with the liberal courts on the federal drug law issues, keeping the states under the jack boot of the “progressive controlled court system.” Beyond that, says Ehline, the people themselves are sovereign. The rights of the few should not be decided by a “mob” in DC.

It Only Will Get Worse With Government Run Health Care, Says Ehline

“If you are taking medical pain killers, or sleep medicines based upon a doctor’s recommendation, the state, feds, nobody should be able to stop you in my personal opinion, but don’t consider what I say to be advice, just an opinion.” And attorney Ehline says with government-run healthcare, it will “only get worse”.

“As we have seen in the UK, once the government has control over healthcare, they will decide the drugs you can take, what you can and cannot eat, drink, smoke, everything.”

Besides, says Ehline, the drug war really is about creating more federal government employees, who traditionally vote for more big government. “It’s like a pay off,” Ehline says. You vote big government, we keep you busy arresting medical MJ patients and providers with your next door neighbor’s tax dollars (the same neighbor taxpayer who is a War veteran taking medical marijuana for his PTSD.)”

We saw with the abolition of “Prohibition”, and restatement of the fact that we have a right to drink booze, that there were a lot of new FBI men with no where to go and no one to bust. The Fed Law Enforcement apparatus got huge during prohibition, including having the right of agents to now carry firearms, which till then, the FBI had not done. (Incidentally, says Ehline, “now the ATF has been caught trying to flood Mexico with assault weapons – Operation Fast and Furious – and originally tried to blame it on lax gun laws here in the U.S., in their continuing efforts to erode the right of people to keep and bear arms with more federal anti gun laws.)

Ehline says, the Bill of Rights is being reinterpreted by revisionist historians with a political agenda to strip the people of their sovereignty. So says Ehline, “Why not create a whole new class of defendants, with plenty of money to defend themselves in court, grow the ATF more, which means more U.S. attorneys and more SEIU members paid with your tax dollars? After all, the courts often agree with people like Eric Holder, a fervent anti gun activist, prior to becoming the Attorney General.”

Is Medicine an Unalienable Right?

Like the right to revolt by force of arms against an oppressive government, there is another unprinted right, Dr. Benjamin Rush, “The Father of American Medicine, and a signer of the Declaration of Independence fought to have included in the Bill of Rights. That is the right to medicine, which is really just part of the right of ‘pursuing’ happiness’,” says Ehline. It is no huge secret that one of the countries largest cash crops is marijuana. What does this tell us? This tells us that there continues to be more and more men and women that become involved in the growth, the sales, and the use of marijuana as time goes on. As Ehline puts it, “More criminal defendants to grow the federal SEIU centered federal government.”

This continues to make a huge element of the more than 40-year-old war on drugs of the federal government to be fighting against those that grow, sell, and use this illegal drug. Through all the contradictions, marijuana has continued to be a Schedule 1 drug. In short, this means the medical use of this drug still remains to be unaccepted by DC, and it continues to hold the number one spot of having the largest abuse potential according to the feds. Even with the constant controversy over the medical use of marijuana, as many as 47.1 percent of the population of San Diego voted for legalizing, regulating, and taxing its use.

To even further cause more contradiction, law and neighborhood enforcement of the County of San Diego pushed their concerns against the running of medical marijuana dispensaries. This of course quickly caused the strict control and ban of such dispensaries. However, due to specific laws of the county, the city had to rescind the controls that were put in place. This then led to the City Attorney’s Office and all four United States attorneys of the state cracking down on medical marijuana dispensaries in the entire state. “So, as we can see, a conservative local government, is working with the feds to crack down on individual and State’s rights. Shame,” says Ehline.


What Does This Boil Down to?

While there are certain aspects of the law that the majority agrees to, there is one important factor that has to be changed. This is the California medical marijuana law that was written by advocates of the use of marijuana in 1996. Instead of being written for anyone that suffers from an ailment being allowed to use medical marijuana, some say this law should be properly worded to protect men and women that suffer from serious medical ailments and diseases that require the use of medical marijuana. Ehline says it is time to end the contradictory marijuana controversy now!
