This case is more about the scope of the federal government, which is to say, it huge. It hate me.

Clarence Thomas in his fine dissent: "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."

Rolling back federal power isn't happening any time soon, so the best bet in this case is some watered down bill that doesn't exactly reclassify marijuana for medical use, but weakly defers to state law in an unenforceable manner. Sort of a 'don't ask - don't tell' for medicinal pot laws.
