The Court has already ruled on this, see Gonzales vs. Raich

Exactly. The court has failed to uphold our civil rights, and instead claimed that our very lives are subject to government usurpation.

Nobody gets to say that they are wrong.

Where in the world did you get such a bizarre, royalist notion into your head? The constitution never granted the court the last word on its own interpretation. Marshall pulled that out of his ass.

it turns out that prohibition is totally constitutional under the interstate commerce clause.

Nope. The failure of the court to enforce the constitution doesn't change what the constitution actually says. If the commerce clause actually granted all the power that the statists claim it does, then the rest of the constitution would be moot.

The great lesson of Wickard is that the Supreme Court is a pack of government shysters whose purpose is to invent excuses for even the most blatant usurpations of powers that were never granted to the federal government. This is why the only viable means to enforce the constitution is nullification of unconstitutional acts of congress.
