I'm not arguing with you either...in fact, I had this discussion with someone on here a few weeks ago. I'll ask this, and I assume you may know the answer...(I don't, I'm not asking a loaded question)...why is it so many Federal laws say things like "State Laws may be stricter or equal, but not lessor"? I'm sure I've worded it very poorly, but hopefully you get the gist of the question.
But what about the medical marijuana laws in some states, wouldn't that be lesser than the federal law against any kind of use of marijuana?

What about the FACT that the DOJ under Obama (and Holder) haven't been honoring CA and CO law?
The authority conferred upon the states by the Tenth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution and which the states delegate to their political subdivisions to enact measures to preserve and protect the safety, health, Welfare, and morals of the community. Police power describes the basic right of governments to make laws and regulations for the benefit of their communities. Under the system of government in the United States, only states have the right to make laws based on their police power. The lawmaking power of the federal government is limited to the specific grants of power found in the Constitution. The right of states to make laws governing safety, health, welfare, and morals is derived from the Tenth Amendment, which states, "The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the states, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people." State legislatures exercise their police power by enacting statutes, and they also delegate much of their police power to counties, cities, towns, villages, and large boroughs within the state. Police power does not specifically refer to the right of state and local government to create police forces, although the police power does include that right. Police power is also used as the basis for enacting a variety of substantive laws in such areas as Zoning, land use, fire and Building Codes, gambling, discrimination, parking, crime, licensing of professionals, liquor, motor vehicles, bicycles, nuisances, schooling, and sanitation. If a law enacted pursuant to the police power does not promote the health, safety, or welfare of the community, it is likely to be an unconstitutional deprivation of life, liberty, or property. The most common challenge to a statute enacted pursuant to the police power is that it constitutes a taking. A taking occurs when the government deprives a person of property or directly interferes with or substantially disturbs a person's use and enjoyment of his or her property.

And then we have Sheriff Joe, who seems to be trying to actually resolve something once and for all by conducting an investigation,
So let the man do what he wants
The United States police rank model is generally quasimilitary in structure. Although the large and varied number of federal, state, and local police departments and sheriff's office have different ranks, a general model, from highest to lowest rank, would be:
Chief of Police, Police Commissioner, Superintendent, Sheriff
Deputy Chief of Police, Deputy Commissioner, Deputy Superintendent, Undersheriff
Inspector, Commander, Colonel
Major, Deputy Inspector
Detective, Inspector, Investigator
Officer, Deputy Sheriff, Corporal
In the United States, a sheriff is generally, but not always, the highest law enforcement officer of a county.

In some states he may be the highest law enforcement in that county, not country, county. The idea that sheriffs have the power to vet presidents or presidential candidates is preposterous.
Sheriff Joe needs to worry about being the sheriff. He's an elected official and it's his duty to ensure that the laws are upheld in Maricopa County, AZ. By wasting his time pursuing these allegations, he's effectively wasting the time of his constituency.
