(Westword)   If there is a time to call your congressperson, it is now. Ask them to support the "Respect States' and Citizens' Rights Act" which would ensure that state laws regarding marijuana will not be pre-empted by the federal government   (blogs.westword.com) divider line 214

doyner: Uuuuh, no. Liberals need to consider the long-term legal ramifications of opening the nullification Pandora's box.


Gosh, you think that's why so many "libertarians" love to push their pro-pot bullshiat on dumbass college kids?

HAHAHA! Good luck with that.

In 12 months, the legalization bill of Colorado will be overturned. There will be no commercial sales of marijuana. However, since the demon weed will have already been legal for citizens to possess and grow, and the federal case will take at least a year, the state of Colorado, after the law is overturned, will not go after their citizens that already have their own gardens. It will ultimately be decriminalized, but still "illegal".

That's my prediction, we'll see how it turns out.

Plenty of conservatives vote for this too. Don't be a partisan asshole.

Yeah, no. That's not how our government works. Nice try, though, subby. Go smoke another bowl.

I will, unlike the liberals, consistently support states rights and I would support state law enforcement preventing federal law enforcement from arresting people who are engaged in activity that is implicitly legal under state laws provided said activity does not violate Constitutional issues.

I think the riskiest part is the increased Twinkies consumption. Was. Substitute Doritos.

GAT_00: This proposal is absurd. State laws should never trump Federal laws, I don't care what you're talking about.


I agree, but I don't think the Feds should be dictating tot he state which drugs should be legal. Unless they are crossing state line it is none of their business.

The bill only alters the language of the CSA. Unfortunately it DOES still set a powerful precedent that could be used to undercut other federal laws at the state level. It's a bit of a slippery slope fallacy to suggest that this will automatically lead to Texas deciding they don't want to pay federal taxes or Kansas making abortion a capital offence, but it's still not a precedent I'd be comfortable with.

I'd rather see a bill removing the language that requires the ONDCP to adopt a position opposing the legalization or rescheduling of any controlled substance. It wouldn't generate as immediate of effect, but it would open the floor for rational discourse at the federal level rather than rote opposition.
