Re: "Two Summit County Pot Raids This Week" SDN Jan. 25

I claim the federal classification of marijuana as a controlled
substance is arbitrary and violates due process of law. Marijuana
does not meet all three criteria to be a controlled substance;
potential for abuse, medicinal use and safety of use. Federal laws
says safety of use determines medicinal use. Marijuana is safe to use
without medical supervision. Marijuana is not dangerous or life threatening.

I claim criminalizing marijuana is an unreasonable and unnecessary
regulation of my fundamental rights to liberty, to property and to
privacy and contravenes the 4th, 5th and 14th Amendments. Criminal
laws present a case or controversy under Article III. Being arrested
is deprivation of liberty, seizing marijuana is deprivation of
property, and a search warrant is an invasion of privacy.

Due process of law requires the deprivation of fundamental rights be
justified by a compelling state interest to show the law is
reasonable and "necessary" to protect public safety. The private
cultivation and sale of marijuana to adults does not threaten the
rights of others. There is no victim of a crime.

Every defendant in a motion to dismiss has standing to make these
claims in court. Stop claiming marijuana is a fundamental right.

Judges can't do their job until lawyer do their jobs. It's against a
lawyer's self-interest to protect fundamental rights from unreasonable laws.

The war on drugs is a failure because it is not govern by the rule of law.

Michael J. Dee Windham, Me.
