Well that's great, excepting that I don't believe any state
has the power to dictate what you can and cannot smoke in your backyard. Arizona
gave you the right to smoke cannabis? wonderful, you shouldn't need permission from them or the federal government in first place. Ron Paul wants the
state governments to dictate what you can and cannot do in your backyard. Just because the federal government is out of the picture doesn't mean your
rights are fully protected.
we have state issued green cards that allow us to do so. The people voted for it. The federal government of course doesn't see it that way.
And what about other states? You think the federal government doesn't always see what's best for the people, but do you think all state goverments
do? I beg to differ. You argue that your state government knew what's best for you in this case, so we'll equate this by assuming that all state
governments no what's best for us. Right.
Fascism at a state level, I see it no different.
