Voices of American law series.
Summary:
Although California residents had approved a ballot initiative legalizing the use of marijuana for medical purposes, Diane Monson was surprised when the Drug Enforcement Agency seized the six plants in her backyard as illegal contraband under federal law. Monson used marijuana to treat her chronic back pain, and she found an ally in activist and fellow cannabis patient Angel Raich. Together, Raich and Monson sued the federal government, claiming that the federal ban on marijuana use was an unconstitutional exercise of Congressional authority under the Constitution's Commerce Clause. The documentary tells the story of this clash of federal and state power through interviews with Monson and Raich; their attorneys Robert Raich and Randy Barnett; U.S. Attorney General John Ashcroft and Acting U.S. Attorney John Vincent; and Butte County District Attorney Mike Ramsey.

95 min.
- Instructional Video
In English.
Summary:
Though over 120 countries voted to create the International Criminal Court (ICC), some of the most powerful nations in the world - China, Russian, and the United States - refused to ratify it, the U.S. claiming, among other things, that the ICC's authority to second-guess the actions taken and the results reached by participating states was an infringement on national sovereignty. Nevertheless, prosecutor Luis Moreno Ocampo issues arrest warrants for the rebel leaders of the Lord's Resistance Army in Uganda, puts four Congolese warlords on trial in The Hague, charges the president of Sudan with genocide and war crimes in Darfur, challenges the UN Security Council to have him arrested, and shakes up the Colombian criminal justice system.
