letter from certain members of CONGRESS asks Feds to not prosecute marijuana users in Washington & Colorado
Group of US lawmakers urges DOJ to respect state marijuana laws

[JURIST] Several members of the US House of Representatives [official website] sent a letter [text, PDF] to the US Department of Justice (DOJ) on Friday urging the federal government to respect recently passed state legislation on marijuana use. The representatives asked the DOJ and its subdivision, the Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) [official websites] to refrain from prosecuting individuals and businesses in Colorado and Washington for using small amounts of marijuana after both states legalized marijuana two weeks ago [JURIST report]. The letter, signed by seventeen members of Congress, urges Attorney General Eric Holder and DEA Administrator Michele M. Leonhart [official profiles] to recognize that voters in Washington and Colorado clearly indicated that they want marijuana decriminalized and that the federal government should not infringe upon the will of voters. The letter contends that Washington and Colorado's newly passed laws not only promote sound public policy, but also comport with the goals of federal drug laws:

[Washington and Colorado] have chosen to move from a drug policy that spends millions of dollars turning ordinary Americans into criminals toward one that will tightly regulate the use of marijuana while raising tax revenue to support cash-strapped state and local governments. We believe this approach embraces the goals of existing federal marijuana law: to stop international trafficking, deter domestic organized criminal organizations, stop violence associated with the drug trade and protect children.

State's rights.
Valid reason to secede if Feds don't acknowledge the 10th Amendment.
We will see how far they will carry this illusion.

The initiative that passed in Washington state will put even more people in prison eventually. Voters got screwed. Ramped up patrols for drugged drivers with 5 nanograms / ml of blood (12 hour wait after inhaling)... get the drift?

this abomination of oppression disguised as good will, shall be remembered in the history of mankind as the anti-christ.
our economics as the beast, and our age the end of primitive sciences.
