  •  Yes, they have the two choices I mentioned. (0+ / 0-)

    You did see where I outlined the two choices the Federal government has, right?

    1.  Work to legalize nationally, withdrawing us from the various international treaties that we have been signatory to obligating us to keep marijuana illegal.

    or....

    2.  Crack down on the States that are trying to unilaterally nullify our country's international treaty obligations.

    I said they had choice, dude.

    I also said, and I'll stand by it, that there's no way in hell that our government takes option 1.  No fucking way, ever.

      only have constitutional authority to regulate interstate commerce.

      the purpose of the second amendment is to promote a well-regulated militia, in the same sense that the purpose of the first amendment is to promote a well-informed electorate.

      •  And enter into treaties. (0+ / 0-)

        That one is pretty clear in the constitution.  :)
