Over the last few days, a lot of conservatives have complained about our posts saying states should refuse to cooperate with federal marijuana prohibition enforcement.

We’ve heard that we’re bad for “picking and choosing what laws to follow or break.” We’ve been repeatedly told that states aren’t allowed to do such things. We’re told that we’re just “libtards” or we “hate America” – and on and on…and on.

But like the liberals who attacked us for years over the same thing, these conservatives know little of the founders and the constitution.

It was James Madison himself who expressly advised this approach to deal with federal programs.

“A refusal to cooperate with officers of the Union” is Madison’s strategy. Learn more about it here.

Even more disappointing, we have been publishing the same kind of posts for years – and we never had any level of outrage against it from conservatives. Until Republicans regained power in Washington D.C.
