Court says pot smokers can be fired, even in Colo.

• AP

Medical and recreational marijuana may be legal in Colorado, but employers in the state can lawfully fire workers who test positive for the drug, even if it was used off duty, according to a court ruling Thursday.

The Colorado Court of Appeals found there is no employment protection for medical marijuana users in the state since the drug remains barred by the federal government.

"For an activity to be lawful in Colorado, it must be permitted by, and not contrary to, both state and federal law," the appeals court stated in its 2-1 conclusion.

There is no single group of people more responsible to the destruction of both our Constitution and the resultant affects on our nation, than the Judges whom take an oath to uphold it.

Amendment IX - The enumeration in the Constitution of certain rights shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people. You have the right to choose what or what not to put into your own body.  Constitutional usurpation #1

Amendment X - The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively or to the people. If the Constitution doesn't specifically delegate an authority, it is the States juresdiction, not the other way around.   

Under Judges logic however, the Commerce and General Welfare Clauses, grant them the arbitrary and exclusive determinations over all rights, even those enumerated in the Constitution, and most importantly, without recourse, as each superior court protects the unconstitutional ruling of the inferior courts. In this case, they are protecting the status quo of the Federal Governments fascist policies over recreational drug use, manufacture and distribution of hemp, despite States rights as shown in Amendment X and individual rights in Amendment IX above.

The corruption, is interestingly, most seen in issues relating to the power to tax, fine and confiscate property from the Citizens and usurping the powers of the Citizens to obtain and remedy unjust and unconstitutional decision by the Judges. Any law that allows the government to usurp a right and therefore fine and confiscate property as do drug laws, are at the forefront of their arbitrary and unconstitutional decisions.  Go figure,  we have a Judiciary that works for the government, that continuously grants the government unconstitutional powers to fine and confiscate property from the Citizens. That is defined as insurrection and is punishable as treason.      

The very people who are supposed to be upholding and protecting the Constitution are its greatest abusers. They are effectively involved in a conspiratorial insurrection against the Citizens by their arbitrary decisions to deny people their rights and property. Despite their actions being well documented throughout the last thirty years, the will of the people to stop the corruption ends up being usurped by either the courts or retribution against those attempting to seek redress by harassment, arrest and imprisonment. Sadly, our society is dying, as all societies that have allowed their judiciaries to run roughshod over its Citizens, by both the moral and economic deprivation of the majority, that result by the decisions and actions of the few.

 I'm thinking that at least two of the three judges in this case might be smoking a little too much weed.  The people of Colorado have spoken in this matter and two out of three branches of our state government are hard at work implementing the law. The courts have seen fit to screw the whole thing up - based on what? Last time I checked the federal government is constrained by Fundamental Law - namely the Constitution - to specific enumerated powers. Everything else is reserved to the states or the people. No exceptions. Maybe if our elected representatives start impeaching these black-robed fools, We the People can reclaim some degree of sanity in government. Before it's too late.
