AbstractThis case study looks at the case Gonzales v. Raich in which the Supreme Court decreed that patients who possessed marijuana were liable to criminal prosecution by federal law enforcement, even if the drug had been prescribed by a physician practicing in a state whose laws permit such prescriptions. The case study is followed by three commentaries analyzing the case.
