Key Laws and Court Cases
In November of 2000 it was found unconstitutional to use specific highways for drug traffic searching. In Gonzales vs. Raich of 2005, it was determined legal for congress to ban marijuana from use, even if used medically. Kennedy vs, Louisiana was held in 2008 and made the death sentence illegal in cases of rape where the victim did not die or the death was not intended. This last one could be questioned based on the usual meaning behind rape.
