He isn't supporting state's rights.  He is pushing for it on a federal level.

Well, he's saying he wants "states to have the power to decide what works best for them." Whatever that means.

You do? 

Why not.  Now of course sometimes it may give me paranoid delusional thoughts like a Trump tweet but most the time I get busy and can concentrate.  You want that wall built, just get me baked. 

You do know that Trump has been laying low on this to appease his evangelical base but he is jumping in when the right time comes.  Too much money to be made for him to pass up.

They shouldn't need a federal law to protect state rights.  That is what the Constitution is for

10th Amendment: The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.

Seems pretty clear to me. Crazy to think that this amendment makes 99.9% of the federal government structure illegal and pretty much all of their laws and regulations void.

The age of the document has zero relevance.

The fact of the matter is that it contains basic ethics and truths which our Government is required to adhere to which will still be relevant centuries from now, and would have been relevant 2,000 years ago.

My point is the law is redundant and unnecessary.  

I don't understand this viewpoint. Marijuana possession and distribution are still against federal law. If the federal government decides to enforce the law, the marijuana growers and dispensers are not only out of business, but possibly facing criminal charges.

His point is that it was never the place of the federal government to create the law in the first place. The interstate commerce clause has been turned into a loophole for creating a federal dictatorship that was never intended
