SCOTUS flips the bird to 'checks and balances'. WTF?

So much for states' rights and the 10th Amendment....oh, and all you pothead...er, "medical marjuana" users are screwed too. The Supreme Court has (sadly) ruled that the federal government can override state laws at whim, apparently. Democracy dies more than a little today:

"Respondents... use marijuana that has never been bought or sold, that has never crossed state lines, and that has had 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" - Justice Thomas, dissenting in Gonzales v. Raich
