When California voters head to the polls in November, they will decide whether the state will make history again — this time by legalizing the recreational use of marijuana for adults.
Even if the Proposition passes, marijuana will still be illegal under Federal Law. The U.S. Supreme Court already ruled that way in a Medical Marijuana case. While President Obama has directed the DoJ to go after more serious crimes and basically leave medical marijuana users alone, a more stringent “law-and-order” president could reverse that with a swift executive order.
So, will the Teabaggers who support “State’s Rights” even to the point of secession over health care take to the streets and defend California should it legalize marijuana for recreational use?
