i understand about the commerce clause and i do not see any

This answer was rated:

i understand about the commerce clause and i do not see any writings there that would thus apply to the subject at hand

From what i read i would have to be a corporate entity or have to effected the econimic damage, further more the commerce clause also states "Intrastate, or domestic, commerce is trade that occurs solely within the geographic borders of one state. As it does not move across state lines, intrastate commerce is subject to the exclusive control of the state."

That is what confuses me as again they have no crontrol as the "trade" was conducted within state boarders where they have no jurisdiction.

"could potentially be sufficiently large as to impact the overall national goal of stabilizing prices" and how is it legal to "Regulate private sales between two people that fall under the constitution as there are unalienable rights and there was no Personal, Contract or Tout involved. no injured party.

and this statement f NLRB v. Jones & Laughlin Steel Corp., the Court recognized broader grounds upon which the Commerce Clause could be used to regulate state activity—most importantly, that activity was commerce if it had a “substantial economic effect” on interstate commerce or if the “cumulative effect” of one act could have an effect on such commerce. 301 U.S. 1 (1937).
Thank you for your new question.

I am afraid that here is what the US Supreme Court has said, the CSA, as part of the Comprehensive Drug Abuse Prevention and Control Act, was well within Congress' commerce power. Nor is any provision or section of the CSA amounts to an unconstitutional exercise of congressional authority. See: Gonzales v. Raich (previously Ashcroft v. Raich), 545 U.S. 1 (2005). The Supreme Court validated Congressional authority to control drugs under the commerce clause even within a state as they did in CA regarding growing marijuana.
