Times, they are a changin'.
That sound you hear is the next domino falling.
The next step is the federal government removing the classification of weed as Schedule 1 and leaving it up to the states to make their own decisions regarding recreational legality.
This is a pretty big step though.
"implement strong and effective regulatory and enforcement systems that will address the threat those state laws could pose to public safety, public health and other law enforcement interests" What are these threats to public safety?
Under what authority can the executive branch decide not to enforce federal law?
I found that odd too. I thought they would have closed the thread with a banned OP.
Driving while under the influence? Sort of like alcohol.
Look at his profile: 81 posts. You are not allowed to post in PRSI with a count under 100, he must have hacked something.
There's rule for posting in PRSI?
Ah that was clever. I wouldn't have thought to check it.
That, 2nd hand smoke, and a shortage of Doritos and twinkies.
An intelligent approach.
I am indulging in some "marijuana-related conduct" right now.
I mean, of course, that I'm posting in a thread about it ...
It wasn't originally posted in PRSI it was in the community area..
The DOJ has lied about this before and they will do it again. Any tiny infraction will give them an excuse to go after them.
"DOJ is reserving its right to file a preemption lawsuit at a later date, since the states' regulation of marijuana is illegal under the Controlled Substances Act."
I see it as a sort of entrapment scenario .
This. You may be in favor of a state's right to legalize marijuana for recreational use but how is it ok for the DOJ to pick and choose which federal laws it wants to enforce? This DOJ is so politically biased, it's a joke.
Wait I thought the right was all kind of enamored with states rights. You guys get a pants tent every time some yahoo governor says no to the ACA..
These states chose to allow recreational bud but that's not OK? The Pres is just doing what you guys want. So states rights are limited?
Exactly. This is the same thing they are pulling with enforcing illegal aliens.
Another WTF? moment there. Is this about Area 51?
There is no WTF here. Just saying that this administration is picking and choosing what laws to enforce.
Case in point Arizona. All they wanted to do was enforce federal law on illegals and Washington shut them down on it.
Then there is this.
No, it's hypocritical for this administration to pick and choose which laws it wants to enforce. And even worse, to put restrictions on this as if to change the law as written. That's not the right of the executive branch.
But you're ok with states not implementing the OCA even though it has withstood the US Supreme Court ?
There are tons of laws that are not enforced.
If you're going to advocate enforcing every law on the book, then we are all in trouble because there are laws banning oral sex, couples living together that are not married, etc.
I didn't say I was ok with that. What's wrong with debating my statement on its own merits without assuming bias?
No it's called common sense application of the law. We should have a bit more of it at all levels.
Common sense based on who? Yeah, that would be a sticky mess.
