Secession or Canada?

If you're terminally ill, or think you might be at some time in the future, things just got worse for you here in the USA:High Court Allows Prosecution of Medical Marijuana Users
Federal authorities may prosecute sick people who smoke pot on doctors' orders, the Supreme Court ruled Monday, concluding that state medical marijuana laws don't protect users from a federal ban on the drug.

The decision is a stinging defeat for marijuana advocates who had successfully pushed 10 states to allow the drug's use to treat various illnesses.
Didn't the "high" court inflict enough pain in the 2000 election?
