Feds Threaten CA over Prop 19

I'm sure many of you have heard by now that officials in the Obama Administration are threatening to take the State of California to court should Prop 19 pass on November 2. I've heard some people suggesting this, and the fact Prop 19 is contrary to federal law, are reasons we should vote against Prop 19.

I strongly disagree. If anything, this is a reason for people to vote for Prop 19. The feds shouldn't be dictating law to the states and they shouldn't interfere with state laws at all, unless those state laws violate the civil rights of that, or another state's, citizens.

I say vote YES on Prop 19, if for these threats alone. Let the feds take us the court and let the battle be joined!

We saw this before.

August 1996, the state DTF busted the San Fran buyers club mentioning 215 in their press release.

October 1996, McCaffrey, Richard Riley, Diane Feinstein (can we kick her out soon?), Bob Dole, and a host of other establishment politicians talked up their strong opposition to Prop. 215 and begged us to vote no and warned the government would still enforce the CSA.

January 1997, the Federal government warned they would take away doctors' ability to prescribe narcotics if they recommended marijuana.

They never followed through on all that talk.
