A Tale of Two Problems (one revisited)
Problem #1. The problem is this: College students drinking alcohol, which is "going to destroy our best and brightest" The remedy is this: "(S)top allowing alcohol advertising during high-profile events like the NCAA men's basketball tournament." Problem #2. The problem is this: "(A) terminally ill woman...(who)...uses marijuana on doctors’ recommendation to treat an inoperable brain tumor and a battery of other serious ailments" - and the court agrees that there is "'uncontroverted evidence' that she needed marijuana to survive" The remedy is this: "(T)he federal government had the authority to prohibit and prosecute the possession and use of marijuana for medical purposes" and "she lacked the legal grounds to exempt herself from federal law." Go team!
