In response to the federal government's intransigence, voters in California, Arizona, Alaska, Washington, Oregon, Nevada, Colorado* and the District of Columbia** have approved medical marijuana by doctor's recommendation, through ballot intiatives, and more than 20 state legislatures have enacted some form of medical marijuana legislation.

However, Congress and drug-free foundations view marijuana as highly addictive and abusive. Organizations of such a fidgety demeanor might as well tell us they’re trying to brainwash us because marijuana is not a drug that should raise any concern.

Her Supreme Court hearing took place on Monday and advocates of medicinal marijuana definitely have a case. The case, known as Ashcroft v. Raich, has a shady vibe. In addition to medicinal marijuana use conflicting with the values of our conservative government, this case raises a call for a different type of federalism, whatever the outcome. If Raich is successful, the power the states have in the U.S. will largely increase.

Fewer than one in two police chiefs support the use of medicinal cannabis by authorized patients, according to the results of a survey of more than 300 police chiefs nationwide conducted by the Police Foundation and the think-tank Drug Strategies.

Fifty-one percent of respondents said that local laws permitting "medical marijuana to be used for seriously ill individuals" are a "step in the wrong direction." Only 38 percent of respondents favored such a policy.

Eighty percent of Americans support the legal use of medicinal marijuana by patients, and 72 percent say that adults who use marijuana recreationally should be fined, but not jailed, according to a nationwide poll conducted last week by Time Magazine and CNN. Only 19 percent of respondents favored jailing recreational pot smokers.

In addition, 40 percent of respondents also said that they favored the legalization of small amounts of marijuana. That figure is more than double the percentage of Americans who endorsed legalization in 1986. Fifty-one percent of respondents said they opposed the legalization of small quantities of pot, and nine percent were unsure.

Stroup said that the shift in U.S. public opinion is indicative of a sea change taking place worldwide regarding marijuana policy. "From Europe to Australia to Canada, governments are recognizing that marijuana prohibition is more damaging to society than marijuana use, and enacting reforms to abolish criminal penalties for the responsible use of cannabis by adults. Here in America, more and more people are coming to the conclusion that marijuana is less harmful than alcohol or tobacco, and should be legalized and regulated similarly."

According to the Time/CNN poll, 47 percent of Americans admit having tried marijuana, up from 31 percent in 1983. This figure is dramatically higher than the percentage reported by annual government surveys, which maintain that only one-third of Americans have smoked marijuana. However, most experts believe that federal surveys generally under-report illicit drug use.

Fewer than one in two police chiefs believe that marijuana should be legalized for medicinal purposes, according to the results of a survey conducted by the National Association of Chiefs of Police.

Sixty percent of respondents answered "no" to the question: "Should marijuana be legalized in the United States for those who have a legitimate medical need for the drug?" The result sharply contrasts with national public opinion polls, which demonstrate that 80 percent of Americans believe that it should be legal to dispense medical cannabis to qualified patients.

In other results, nearly 70 percent of respondents agreed that decriminalizing "soft drugs" like marijuana "would allow more resources for violent and property crime management."

Eighty-two percent said that the drug war has been "successful in reducing the use of illegal drugs." This finding also contrasts with previous public opinion polls, including a 2001 Pew Research Center poll that found three out of four respondents believe America is losing the war on drugs.

Several U.S. Supreme Court justices reacted skeptically Monday to the arguments of two chronically ill California women seeking immunity from federal prosecution for smoking marijuana because state voters approved its medicinal use.

Angel Raich, 39, of Oakland, and Diane Monson, 47, of Butte County, argue that U.S. officials are violating the Constitution by trying to stop them from using marijuana prescribed by doctors for their severe chronic pain.

Justice Antonin Scalia said it was logical that some of the estimated 100,000 Californians who use medicinal marijuana would purchase it on the black market, making it an economic commodity the federal government can constitutionally regulate. And Breyer said people who believe marijuana has medicinal value should first take their case to the federal Food and Drug Administration.

``Medicine by regulation is better than medicine by referendum,'' he said

California voters approved the nation's first medicinal marijuana law, Proposition 215, in 1996. But the case has ramifications beyond California. Ten other states have laws allowing marijuana use for medicinal purposes, including Montana, where voters last month approved a ballot initiative.

Marijuana is used to alleviate chronic pain, such as from glaucoma, and to suppress nausea and induce the appetite of people undergoing chemotherapy or battling AIDS.

Raich, a frail, 98-pound mother of two who suffers from an inoperable brain tumor and a host of other ailments, said the marijuana prescribed by her Berkeley physician is the only medicine that has worked. It has allowed her to live a somewhat normal life after needing a wheelchair for four years.

Without it, Raich said, she would no longer be able to keep food down and would quickly waste away.

``If I was ever to get raided and the federal government took my medicine away from me, I would die in a very rapid, quick way. Without cannabis every two hours, I become debilitated,'' she said at a Washington news conference after the court session.

Raich said she may be forced to move to a country with more relaxed laws if she loses the case, because she fears she will be targeted by federal agents because of her high-profile role as a medicinal marijuana user.

But a legal victory for Raich could be a narrow one that would leave unresolved the broader question of the legality of medicinal marijuana.

The Bush administration, during its second term in office, faces the prospect of spreading unrest across Southwest and Central Asia unless it makes substantial changes in its foreign policy priorities. Pakistan, in particular, could develop into a major new headache for the Bush team.

Annan will see the outgoing Secretary of State Colin Powell and Condoleezza Rice, President George W. Bush's national security adviser who has been named to succeed Powell, at a time of some friction between him and Washington.

Last week the Bush administration, through U.N. Ambassador John Danforth, expressed confidence in Annan after pointedly avoiding support when congressional hardliners called for the secretary-general's resignation over corruption in the U.N. oil-for-food program for Iraq.

At the moment, 11 U.S. states allow chronically ill people to smoke marijuana to help relieve pain. Among them is California, where Angel Raich grows her own marijuana to cope with the pain from a brain tumor and other diseases. She spoke to reporters on the steps of the Supreme Court.

ANGEL RAICH
"If it was not for cannabis, I would not be here today and talking to you and fighting for my rights. And I feel very strongly that the justices should think very hard about the facts before them because if they decide that I have the right to live then I will be able to spend the rest of my life with my family. On the other hand, if they side against me, it means that they would be giving me a death sentence."

The marijuana she smokes every two waking hours makes life bearable for Angel Raich. It eases the pain from an inoperable brain tumor, scoliosis and several other permanent disabilities. It’s the only thing her doctors will prescribe, because she has severe allergies that cause violent reactions to traditional medicine.

The Justice Department says federal authority is supreme in this matter, and the Drug Enforcement Administration already has raided one California patient’s house and destroyed her cannabis plants. If the court favors the government’s view, more raids would follow in the 11 mostly Western states that have legalized medical marijuana.

The Supreme Court on Monday appeared unlikely to shield medical marijuana users from federal drug laws, as justices expressed deep reservations about sanctioning even limited use of illegal drugs.

Five justices seemed inclined to rule against the two California patients who sued to prevent the federal government from confiscating their drugs, with two others appearing more open to either side. Justice Clarence Thomas remained characteristically silent.

At issue in the case is whether Congress or the states have the final say over drug policy. The 1970 Controlled Substances Act banned all uses of marijuana, but in the last decade 11 states have adopted laws that permit the use of marijuana with a doctor's recommendation.

Randy Barnett, the women's lawyer, told the high court that medical marijuana falls outside the commercial drug activity that Congress has a constitutional interest in regulating or prohibiting. He added that the government's war on drugs is not undercut by state efforts to help sick people feel better.

"This is different," he said. "It's a narrow class of people growing it for themselves or having a provider grow it for them."

Justice Anthony Kennedy wondered how the court could assume that all patients were growing marijuana themselves instead of buying from drug dealers.

"Can't we infer from the enormous commercial market that possession of the drug is proof of participation in the market?" Kennedy asked.

"Maybe it is and maybe it isn't," Barnett said.
