    Another utterly unsupportable comment.

    When you think you can actually join the conversation, please do.

    Maybe you can tell us how the 'it is legal under state law, so we will not prosecute it under federal law' argument holds water.

    Certainly, states can have whatever laws that want.

    That they have whatever law they want in no way nullifies a federal law.
    That is, something can be legal according to state law, but illegal under federal law; that someting is legal under state law in no way justifies the decision to not enforce the relevant federal law in that state.

    The point of a federal law, after all, is that it applies everywhere, to everyone.

    I'll take some proof of that. My understanding is that the law makes provisions all the time. For example, the health care proposals floating around in Congress that make some form of insurance mandatory make provisions for lower income persons.
    If you notice something good in yourself, give credit to God, not to yourself, but be certain the evil you commit is always your own and yours to acknowledge.

    Its possible that some laws do specify some 'provision' for certain people as part of the law itself.

    But that's not that we have here. This is a change in policy, deciding to not prosecute federal law based on the permissiveness of a state law.

    Its the New Obama policy re: medical marijuana.

    and federal law will still pursued.
    Selectiveely, based on the permissiveness of state laws.

    So, I ask again:
    Maybe you can tell us how the 'it is legal under state law, so we will not prosecute it under federal law' argument holds water.

    It is the State of California's problem to deal with misdemeanors not the Feds. The will still pursue federal concerns according to the policy.

    How does this response make sense, given the subject and question I asked?

    Well California gets to deal with the situation on their level and the feds get to with it on their level.
