Aphorism of the Day

“Respondents Diane Monson and Angel Raich use marijuana that has never been bought or sold, has never crossed state lines, and has no demonstrable effect on the national market for marijuana. If Congress can regulate this under the Commerce Clause, then it can regulate virtually anything – and the Federal Government is no longer one of limited and enumerated powers.”

-by Justice Thomas, in a dissent of Gonzales vs. Raich. [link via Half Sigma.]
