Clearing the Smoke

"Congress should simply allow states to regulate marijuana as they see fit and stop wasting federal tax dollars on the failed drug war" [emphasis mine].

Wrote Colorado Rep. Jared Polis, a democrat.

I couldn’t agree more with the good congressman.  But why stop with marijuana.  If states can responsibly regulate marijuana, why can’t Congress allow states to manage their own affairs on most issues?

Too bad his, and the majority of his colleagues’, federalism stops well short of what the founders intended.
