Only one law

 


To the Editor:

Did I miss President Obama issuing another executive order making marijuana legal? I wouldn’t put it past him. Last I checked, marijuana is still illegal according to federal law.

Yes, I’ve heard the pro-stoner argument of: Well, we took a vote and it passed, now it’s a state law! I ask you: what is next? Cocaine? LSD? Child porn? The fact that this even made it to being voted on is absurd!

Now, a little bit about laws that govern our great country: according to the Constitution of the United States, Article V1, paragraph 2: “This Constitution, and The Laws of The United States which shall be made in persuance thereof: and all treaties made, or which shall be made, under the authority of The United States, shall be The Supreme Law of the land: and the Judges in every State shall be bound thereby, anything in The Constitution or Laws of any State to the contrary not withstanding.”

Hmmm. Does that mean any state that wants to go rogue and defy federal law can do so? I think not! It’s kind of like our elected representatives not being bound to ObamaCare—but that’s another story.
