The federal government claims the authority to prohibit a plant. Of course, this is absurd, as evidenced by the fact that it required a constitutional amendment before the feds could enforce alcohol prohibition.
I appeared on Real News with David Knight to talk about this unconstitutional war on a plant and how it has ultimately failed because of state action. In fact, the feds lack the personnel and recourses to enforce marijuana prohibition. When the states stopped cooperating, the entire scheme began to crumble. As David put it, “The feds are pushing against a rope – and its made of hemp.”
I went on to explain how marijuana activists have created a nullification blueprint was can apply to many other issues.
