Nothing in the 10th amendment allows a state to stop the fed gvmnt from enforcing federal law.This Constitution, and the Laws of the United States which shall be made in Pursuance thereof; and all Treaties made, or which shall be made, under the Authority of the United States, shall be the supreme Law of the Land; and the Judges in every State shall be bound thereby, any Thing in the Constitution or Laws of any State to the Contrary notwithstanding.
It's anymore productive arguing with him than it is arguing with any other extreme leftist around here. He might call himself a conservative but he is anything but conservative. He mostly takes a knee-jerk response that he figures will put him in line with Pat Robertson or Anne "the man" Coulter and then makes up his arguments from there.
Now as to your point, I don't think this even becomes an issue of intrastate trade. It's simply a matter of prohibition not existing in one state versus another. If the feds want to regulate traffic of prohibited material from one state to another, that's fine with me. But the DEA raiding marijuana points of sale in California when the people of California have made it clear that they don't want prohibition of marijuana is a whole different animal.
