Re: Justices block medical marijuana.

Government created for the people by the people. Isn't that the whole basis 
to our government?

Well, apparently not. The people of California passed into law, by majority 
vote, that they will allow the distribution of marijuana for medical 
purposes. Now I don't know if that is right or wrong, but it doesn't matter 
- - the people of California spoke. So now the federal government comes in 
and puts a stop to it. Does the people's vote not count?

This is not free government, this is dictatorship at its worst. They took a 
right away from the people of California and really they took a right away 
from you and me.
