SHE TOLD ASHCROFT: "Mind your own business."
The Court agreed -- it's up to the states!
Angel McClary Raich has an inoperable brain tumor. After her
doctor tried everything to keep her from wasting away, he finally
recommended marijuana. It saved her life. What's more it got her
out of a wheelchair and back with her husband and children.
But the Attorney General says there's no such thing as medical
marijuana -- even though studies show otherwise1 --
and it's legal in 9 states. John Ashcroft has been sending
his troops out to bust the sick and dying and their care-givers.
He even tried to intimidate their doctors but that's where
the Supreme Court drew the line.2
Now the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals has joined with Angel
Raich.3 They're telling the Attorney General
to butt out.
A TIME-CNN poll shows that 80 percent of Americans support
medical marijuana for the seriously ill.4 Isn't
it time for the federal government to catch up with science
and the people?5
