Doesn't stop anyone enjoying it. It simply continues to line the coffers of organized crime and keeps your taxes higher than they have to be. Not much of a win.
They don't give a fuck about the people, they just don't want competition against pill mills. South Dakota was hit hard by the opioid crisis, and I bet you big pharma donated (read: Bribed) republicans in that state.
I wonder if South Dakota has any private prisons or police unions that are lining the pockets of the judges and lawmakers….
If you get caught smoking weed in South Dakota, you need to go to jail for stupidity. Iv'e been smoking weed for 45 years and it has never been legal, and I have never been in trouble with the law.
Just wait until they finally calculate all that beautiful sales tax money they have been passing on in favor of bloated police/jail/prison budgets. Follow the money!
Whatever the law says is irrelevant. The Constitution grants us the power to govern ourselves.
The will of the people IS the law!
How do these people go through law school without marijuana
Over turning the vote? Sounds like a fascist victory to me.
99% of all fed overrule of local majorities is psychotic, moral evil and those nazi, FED enforcers all need to be slaughtered.
It just goes to show you that politicians dont give a damn about how you vote, especially if its against their interests. Republicans did the same thing in FL when the majority said that former felons should get their voting rights back.
this entire country needs re-done
The issue would be, Kyle, with that supremacy clause, there does have to actually be a conflict. There is no federal law prohibiting the legalisation of drugs. There is a federal prohibition of drugs, though. There might be a reason though why it IS isnt constitutional under that state constitution. Constitutional amendments usually need a two thirds majority. The majority was 54% here, so that would explain it.
This judge must not have been invited to the party back in the day, now she's taking it out on everybody.
Where'd all the freedom go?
More like big pharma overturned the will of the people.
We have no moral application to listen to the schizophrenia whims of some parasitic so called leader class. Refused to comply!
Kyle here's what I'll say he can't take it of the list without congress and lots of weed shops don't want him to lower it because it would screw up their entire business model
So what's the point of voting then ? Smh that's so fucked up.
They need to stop letting old white men make all the laws
Federal law doesn't override state law. Where state law is unconstitutional federal law must override it. Otherwise state law always wins. That's state sovereignty. I believe your argument that schedule I being federal overrides states rights on this issue is incorrect as this isn't an issue of constitutionality.
It’s not illegal it’s a human right
