    Digsbe. I love you bro but you just contradicted yourself in a massive way.

    How can you say what you just said in this case, but say that it's not fair for the Federal Government to 'impose' same sex marriage on your state?

    Because the federal government doesn't have Constitutional power over marriage. State's give the marriage certificates, not the feds. Currently the federal definition of marriage is under DOMA (only man and woman marriage). That doesn't get forced onto state's defining marriage either. It's in regards tot he Constitution and the separation of powers. If state's were the ones who decided on the criminal nature of marijuana then this would be ok, but the fact is that we have a federal law that prohibits certain drugs and legalizes certain controlled substances. The only way California can legally do this is if the Controlled Substances Act is ruled unconstitutional or overturned.

    Btw, I love you too

    This has me fuming. I really question just what kind of freedom we have if I can't even enjoy a harmless joint without facing prison time. Polls indicate that Prop. 19 may very well pass so it will be interesting to see how the DEA acts.

    Hopefully Obama will tell them to back off like he did with medical Marijuana. If the DEA goes ape **** and wastes billions of tax payer dollars on fighting the inevitable then I am gonna be upset.
    If it does pass, and it's enforced with the same vigor we enforce our immigration laws, I'd say no one in California has anything to worry about. ;-)

If AZ can't mirror a federal law, than CA shouldn't be allowed to literally break federal law.
    The Constitution does not grant the Feds the power to regulate intrastate commerce. Any law that legalizes simple possession or taxes small-quantity sale is inherently intrastate.

    Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.

    However, the ruling by the 9th Circuit, sets the precedent that Federal law overrides state law.

    Those damned unintended concequences!

    No need, Marijuana is non-addictive and does not create junkies.
    I use a lot of satire and sarcasm so keep that in mind when reading my posts.

    The same people who pay for all the health problems created by illicit drug use already.

    Yeah, except that there's a higher authority than the 9th Circuit.

    Besides, what are the Feds going to do -- invade California?

    As much as I would love to see this pass, if the feds really want to be asses about it, they simply have to cut aid in an amount that would be detrimental to the state. Same as the promises to cut road funding if a state wouldn't change the drinking age to 21.
