Interestingly, Trump is threatening lawsuits to stop any further commenting. Too bad, as POTUS, saying any kind of crap about him, no matter how wrong is protected speech. The same reason Trump was able to call Obama a Kenyan Muslim without repercussions.

Sweet, sweet karma.

This is true. However, it is also true that laws are only as enforceable as the desire or will of people to enforce them. Many states (such as California) do not see the value of throwing money at this issue or clogging up our penitentiaries with people who shouldn't be there. If you look at how the government has classified marijuana it is obviously ridiculous. FFS, by their classification, marijuana is more dangerous than fentanyl and oxycodone?!?! I would much rather someone take a bongrip after a day at work than have them be strung out on fantanyl or oxycodone.

Then it should be no problem getting the federal law changed, right?

It will change when they realize that no matter how much they stomp their feet that it wont be enforced.

I hope they don't need federal funding for anything important.

Don't worry, the federal government gets a good chunk of its funding from California. We'll just hold on to it for them.

Given the red ink in California government spending already, they still need other people's money badly.

Maybe I should invest in popcorn commodites. This will be interesting to watch.

San Francisco is worried, and that was last year. Should they be more worried this year?

Well, I suppose if we still had the over 405 billion that California residents paid to the federal government, we would have plenty of money to cover that. Of course it might make covering the costs of those pesky hurricanes a bit tougher for the rest of the country.

You think the federal government is going to take our toys away if we don't enforce marijuana laws? I suppose we'll find out, but somehow I don't see it going that way.

And I am not quite sure that a deficit (the first in five years) that equates to 0.06% of the California GDP puts California in a bad place.
