A lesson in power
All the pot smoking voters in Washington and Colorado are about to receive a valuable lesson in power. They think they have won a permanent victory for liberty, even if they don’t describe it in those words. In reality, all they have done is antagonize federal forces of evil which are already planning a powerful counter-assault that will remind the slaves of America (the voters) who is really in charge
And why? Because if marijuana decriminalization is not crushed by the political forces in Washington D.C., then its very existence might encourage other states to decriminalize things like industrial hemp farming, holistic medicine or even raw milk. For God’s sake, states might behave under the misimpression that they control their own destiny!
"When the boot of government is on your throat it doesn't matter whether it's a liberal boot or a conservative boot."
On this subject, I’ve already published a list of five things any state could legalize right now in order to experience an economic golden age. Each of these fives things would require states to assert their Tenth Amendment rights to nullify the power of the federal government within the state’s own borders. This is precisely what Colorado and Washington have done with marijuana decriminalization laws. They may not call it a “Tenth Amendment” initiative, but that’s exactly what it is.

That first paragraph says it all.
So now it is up to Colorado and Washington to stand up for their rights. If the federal government sends agents to shut them down will their local sheriffs step in say “go awayyou have no jurisdiction here and if you persist you will be arrested and thrown in one of our jails”. Your local sheriff is the highest ranking legal authority in your area, not the federal government.
So what will they do stand up for their rights or bow down and be a slave?
I think they will make a stand in the streets... dont know about their congress or governors... generally those guys are cowards.
It will really have to an act from the Governor..
he can call in the states National Guard... that is if they arent all in the middle east.
