Our federal government has lots of duties, obligations, and powers beneath the Constitution. Some scholars argue that the reach of federal government must be limited and constrained. Other scholars argue that the federal government must not be constrained or limited where the welfare of the U.S. people is concerned. For illustration, in the case, Gonzales versus Raich, the boundaries of the federal government's definition of interstate commerce are in problem. In this case, Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) agents took marijuana plants from the woman's home in California beneath the Federal Controlled Substances Act. Though, under California's Compassionate Use Act of 1996, the plants were allocated for medical use. For this discussion, address the given problems:
a. Does the federal government have right to ban marijuana beneath the Commerce Clause of the U.S. Constitution?
b. Is this an overreach of federal system, or is this effort in line with the duties and obligations of our central government describeed in the Constitution?
