    Isn’t that where it is currently? The states currently have the say so about the laws but that isn’t convenient for the pro pot group. They want the feds to take over and force the states to comply whether they agree or not. In fact I think that is the position for a great deal of this forums members. I brought the local community position a little while back and it went begging.

    Technically, no. It is still illegal at the federal level and if the feds wanted to be dicks they could shut down the states that have made it legal. The pro pots groups want the feds to officially declare it legal for the states to make it legal within their borders.

    I just remember seeing a tweet within the last few months where he stated that and I agree with your voting sentiment.

    I think we are saying the same thing. By the feds declaring it illegal, the states still can in fact vote their own mandates of making it legal or no. That’s why it is a checkerboard currently. The pro pot advocates want the Feds to make it legal across the board and take any control from a state mandate.
