Is Morrison Dead?


Last term’s Supreme Court decision in Gonzales v. Raich, upholding the federal regulation of intrastate, noncommercial possession of medical marijuana, struck federalism a terrible blow. I explain why in an article I contributed to forthcoming symposim in the Lewis & Clark Law Review. A draft of the article is now available on SSRN here. (Be forewarned that I had fun with this one, and the article is filled with references to Jim Morrison and The Doors.)
