    It being officially illegal under federal law means you are technically still committing a federal crime using the substance.

    That is unacceptable, even with a wink-nudge from the DOJ.

    It's either legal or it isn't. Laws that aren't enforced are ripe for abuse. I think DOJ turning a blind eye is a worse outcome than fighting it tooth and nail. At least then as a citizen you know the position of your own government on the matter.

      and banksters for now.

      If we get that handled, I promise to pay a lot of attention to your moral qualms with not busting people for having some medicine in their pocket.
