Thanks to the state Senators that voted for freedom and against the police state yesterday.

Thank you to the seven state Senators on the Health and Human Services Committee that voted to protect individual freedom and against expanding the massively failed drug war yesterday.

On a 7-2 vote, the committee killed Senate Bill 196, which would have made it illegal to purchase Sudafed (and similar over the counter medicines) without a doctor’s prescription. Law enforcement was the driving force behind the bill, saying it was necessary to combat meth-amphetamine production.

Socially conservative Senator Lundberg, before voting against the bill, nailed it: “I am troubled by the testimony in favor of the bill that there is no acknowledgment of the liberties and freedoms of citizens compromised by this.” (See “Colorado Senate panel rejects more limits on meds used in meth.”)

It is always good when senators from both parties recognize that looking to the government, and giving it more power over individuals, is not the answer.

Thank you. I encourage everyone to send an email to the seven senators that stood up for freedom. They are:

They are:

Medical Marijuana and the Tenth Amendment

The Colorado Independent has an article (that I found thanks to Complete Colorado) on Obama’s Department of Justice potentially cracking down on the medical marijuana industry in states that have legalized it. (See “DOJ smack down of medical continues, raising questions in Colorado.“)
This presents an excellent opportunity for those that believe in the United States Constitution: a chance to actually enforce it.
The Federal regulation of a plant grown in this state, harvested in this state, sold in this state and consumed in the state is a farce. None of the enumerated powers of Article, Section 8 gives the feds the authority to regulate this activity. Using the interstate commerce clause as a justification is nonsense, yet we countenance it because the US Supreme Court said we should. What sheep we are. The feds can not make the moon the sun by declaring it so. It is time we assert our sovereignty under the Tenth Amendment and stop the fed’s unconstitutional usurpation of state power.
How many “conservative” Republicans would be willing to enforce the Tenth Amendment when the issue is marijuana? On the other hand, how many “progressive’ Democrats want the feds to butt out of this issue, but want them involved in health care?
It is hypocrisy to pick and choose when the Constitution should be applied on a case-by-case basis depending on the issue. The enumerated powers and the Tenth Amendment always apply, even when you don’t want them to.
