If you use the 10th Amendment to bring drug laws back to the states?Submitted by true_believer on Fri, 07/20/2012 - 22:47
If we find politicians who are willing to use the tenth amendment to bring the drug laws back to the states but are not for legalization or decriminalization on the state level. They are going to run into a couple tricky spots.
They will be ask:
1) what do you do with all those people found guilty of prior federal drug charge?
2) what would be the role of the Federal government on the drug issue?
I am not asking everyone who is for the legalization of drugs to come comment on how this thinking is wrong. I am saying if this is the conditions and you can only get to the 10th Amendment stance how do you cover the other two problem areas for this stance? What would be your stance to defend these two questions? In other words what would be your transition plan be?
on the first one how do you set forward a plan that does not freak people out?
on the second one would the Federal Government always have a role to play with anything that comes across our boarders?
If you are a person who has to have it all your own way and cannot consider these questions under these conditions your response will not really help me so please don't answer.
