The Dopes on the Supreme Court

In the recent decision on medical marijuana I thought Justice Thomas had it about right, as he often does. He said the following in his dissent - "The majority prevents states like California from devising drug policies that they have concluded provide much needed respite to the seriously ill." He also commented "Our federalist system, properly understood, allows California and a growing number of states to decide for themselves how to safeguard the health and welfare of its citizens."

I am not sure where Scalia was on this - it seems odd that he voted with the majority. But in this case Thomas had it right.
