Washington State Pot Law In Danger As City Of Fife Claims Federal Law Trumps State LawsSubmitted by pawnstorm12 on Sat, 08/16/2014 - 19:07
WA State Law I-502 legalizing marijuana was passed in 2012.
But the city of Fife, WA has made it illegal to own a marijuana business in that city and is arguing that states do not have the right to pass laws which usurp federal laws.
Sounds like quite an establishment republican strong-hold there.
If Fife is successful in its argument, it may mean the new state law legalizing marijuana could be in danger at the state level.
I don't use pot (tried it years ago but wasn't my thing), but I voted to legalize it because I believe the drug war is a hoax against Americans for a vitimless "crime."
It's also big money for law enforcement and corrections industry.
I'll bet most of the people who voted against this law drink alcohol or use some other mind altering substance (and yes that includes caffeine).
Yet in their hypocritic manner, they advocate jailing people for using a weed which God grows naturally on this earth.
In fact, pot is probably the least refined of all drugs or alcohol.
If Fife is able to get the new pot law overturned at the state level, I can only imagine the utter bedlam which will ensue.
Like I said, I don't use weed, but I do believe in states' rights to thumb their noses at ridiculous federal laws and federal overreach.
