  2. Justices Uphold Federal Medical-Marijuana Prosecutions

    As reported in the New York Times on June 6:

    WASHINGTON, June 6 - The Supreme Court today upheld the power of Congress to prohibit and prosecute the possession and use of marijuana for medical purposes, even in the 11 states that permit it.

    The 6-to-3 decision, a firm reassertion of federal authority, revealed a deep fissure within the coalition that over the past decade has provided the majority for a series of decisions curbing Congressional power and elevating the role of the states within the federal system. Two members of that coalition, Justices Anthony M. Kennedy and Antonin Scalia, voted this time to uphold federal authority.

  3. Note From the Chair — by Nathan Allen

    I'm still visiting the affiliates and learning quite a bit. I was at the Wayne meeting last week. Wayne came so close to getting another person elected to a school board. Kudos to Andrew Wrenbeck for running a low cost, high yield campaign. Andrew garnered 43% of the vote and only spent $150. The Wayne affiliate is going to be doing some very exciting things in the very near future. Keep an eye on them!

    I'll be meeting with the SW Michigan affiliate next week.

    This Sunday is the first LEC meeting. We are meeting at the Lansing office at 1pm. I hope everyone who wants to be considered for one of the open positions on the board is there.
