  •  Interstate Commerce is very broad (5+ / 0-)

    The supreme court has ruled that interstate commerce encompasses anything that is transported across state lines, even if the actual item itself originated within the state. So for example, even if all the ingredients that Subway uses to make its sandwiches were sourced from in-state, because those ingredients typically are or can be sourced from across state lines, it is subject to interstate commerce laws.

    That was first ruled to be the case for wheat production quotas during the depression, which (somewhat) more recently served as the precedent for federal drug laws applying even to individuals who produce only for themselves.

    Those who ignore the future are condemned to repeat it.
