Justice Clarence Thomas is commended for suggesting that the time has come to lift the federal marijuana ban

Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas was praised on Twitter for his comments on Monday saying that the federal government’s “conflicting” marijuana laws “may no longer be necessary.”

Thomas made his comment in a dissenting opinion that he wrote against the court’s decision not to hear a marijuana case. The case concerned a medical marijuana dispensary in Colorado that believed the federal government wrongly denied it federal tax breaks Companies in other industries were granted.

“The current approach of the federal government is a half, half-out regime that at the same time tolerates and forbids the local use of marijuana,” wrote Thomas. “This contradicting and unstable state of affairs weighs down the basic principles of federalism and hides traps for the unwary.”

“A ban on domestic use or cultivation of marijuana may no longer be necessary or appropriate to the federal government’s piecemeal approach,” he concluded.

“Clarence Thomas” was trending on Twitter Monday night, and thousands of users agreed with his comments.

History professor Liam O’Mara wrote: “The federal ban on #cannabis never made sense and has led to #mass incarceration and even excessive logging and plastic use, but at least the tide is turning. It seems that even the arch-conservative Clarence Thomas is ready to “rethink the prohibition laws.”

If Clarence Thomas moves to the left on cannabis legalization, you’ll need to reassess your position. If @NHDems wants to show that @GovChrisSununu is out of the mainstream, that’s a real part of the message.https: //t.co/PQ8UvPcUOH #NHPolitics

Didn’t know Clarence Thomas was the legalization judge.

In a case that was ignored by the court, he wrote a statement calling for a “half-in-half-out regime that simultaneously tolerates and prohibits the local use of marijuana”. Https://t.co/gbWxAmxLJp
