The DEA just doesn't have the manpower to enforce minor infractions, they just expect the states to enforce it or inform federal of bigger operations.

I don't care one way or the other about legalization, but yes, this guy was far and away breaking the rules set up for dispensaries.

I live in California, and one of the things I can say is that our "mostly-legalization" has virtually eliminated street dealers. To me, that`s a serious plus.

Actually, Gerry, feds do have a right to ban substances with a constitutional amendment. The current justification for the war on drugs is rather wodgy though (way overstepping on the commerce clause). It should likely be a states rights, with federal restrictions on transportation between states (via actual meaning behind the commerce clause). I believe it were struck down you`d see the laws replaced through amendment quickly, there is a need to protect at the borders. This is what happened in the article, actually.

It has always been about money, the 1937 Tax Act killed the hemp growing commodity in the US, which pushed the need for alternatives like synthetic fabrics created by Dupont, it made them rich.
Lobbyists pay big bucks to stall stuff in congress, and we all know politians love money, so there you have it. Its been this way for years, you expect it to stop now...what are you thinking, they like it this way they aren't going to change a damn thing.
I am an Iowa native, I have watched meth almost dominate our state, things would change here if the meth addicts could legally smoke pot instead.

Another article, this one from the California State Attorney's office. Outlining other cases of people grossly violating the law and being arrested. Things like selling across state lines.
