Who has the rights here, the state or the fed? Are drug laws Constitutional?
Why or why not?
I'm no Coustitutional scholar but from everything I have read the drug war is unConstitutional and drug laws should be left up to the states. I'll defer to someone who knew more than I do, he even wrote a book about it. "Ain't Nobody's Business If You Do; The Absurdity of Consensual Crimes in Our Free Nation" by Peter McWilliams. LINK
There's more to it but this quote sums it up pretty nicely:
Nowhere in the Enumeration of Powers is there anything remotely resembling "regulation of personal or public morality," "making sure no citizens hurt themselves by experimental, reckless, or even downright foolhardy behavior," or "bringing God's laws to Earth as God's laws are interpreted by whichever religious group gathers enough political power." The Enumeration of Powers gives the government the power to run the government, not the personal or religious lives of the people.
Of course the Feds will still go after non rx mj users in Cali. The powers that be are beholden to industries that stand to lose money if mj/hemp are legal. Don't wanna upset their donors. Hell, on Obamas Change.org site he had people list their main issue and then vote on the issues. Legalizing mj and hemp were voted #1 last year and he never siad a word.
