Authority of Federal Government Limited; a Random Legal Thought

Does the creation of a state law, that runs contrary to current federal law, revoke the authorization of the Federal Government to enforce that law within the now contradictory state?

I believe it does.

The over a dozen states that have enacted Medical Marijuana Laws in my belief have revoked federal authority as it pertains to the enforcement of federal laws relating to the medicinal use, distribution and manufacture/growth of Marijuana.

This is not legal advice. Circumstances tend to be issue and fact specific. If there are issues involving you, please contact a lawyer to discuss them.

I’ll be flushing this Random Legal Thought out in more detail in the future. Stay Tuned.
