Court shoots down Angel

Thanks to Lisa for sending me a link to sad story. The 9th Circuit Court of Appeals shot down Angel Raich and ruled she is not immune from federal prosecution on drug charges, despite the fact that medical marijuana is the only "drug" that helps her and it's legal in California where she resides.
Because of a prior high court ruling, the issue before the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals was narrowed to the so-called right to life theory: that marijuana should be allowed if it is the only viable option to keep a patient alive.
Raich, 41, began sobbing when she was told of the decision and said she would continue using the drug.

No small confession on her part. I'm willing to bet money that in light of this ruling. the feds will be arresting her soon to make an example of her on account of her activism for medical marijuana patients.
