    But the admin doesn't care.

    This may be where all the morons who voted for this admin are going to realize that Obama is all about eliminating their rights as well as the rights of everyone who voted against him.

    Won't it be fun when the feds come to your house and seize your plants and charge you..or maybe they'll just seize your property. Of course, they'll have to get in line behind the IRS agents who are pounding on your door.

    You deserve what you're going to get.

    Federal Law trumps State law, been that way since the Constitution was approved by the States. You Don't like it? To damn bad. Your recourse is to get an amendment passed Congress and then 37 States or get Congress to pass a new law.

    My personal opinion is that the Federal Government should shut down any State that violates Federal law. Since they don't want to obey the law cut off all funds for EVERYTHING. This includes the idiots that claim they are sanctuaries for illegal shit.

    Wow. Now cons are pro- MJ legalization.

    Losing elections makes for strange bedfellows.

    My grandfather did 6 months in federal prison because he ran a still.

    The feds have no right to tell us what we can produce, sell, drink or smoke. And that's something that will motivate otherwise apathetic hillbillies to kill over.

    To be fair federal law trumps state law only in the areas of federal competency. The federal government has claimed drug regulation, but I see no consitutional basis for it, unless the drugs cross state lines. A 10th amendment fight against federal drug laws, given a strict constructionist court, should theoretically suceeed on its merits.

    I doubt it would though, as federal regulation of drugs seems to have precedence on its side.

    It wasnt directly because of the still, it was probably because of evading the excise tax on alcohol production, a taxing ability congress has claimed since the consitution was signed.
