But Colorado Attorney General John Suthers isn’t backing down. In a statement, he said he intends to defend the state’s marijuana laws.
Wow, an Attorney General that works for the people…
The clause states that in general, federal law takes precedence over state law.
Ha! Republicans suing against state’s rights… Over a plant 🙂
So far, the federal government has mostly taken a hands-off approach to state medicalizations and legalizations, but in January 2017, the country will have a new president. That person could order the attorney general to enforce federal prohibition regardless of state law.
Time to register to vote.
