Initiative 502: Legalization of marijuana

Federal law vs. state law

I have yet to hear in all the endorsements for Initiative 502, the basic problem of federal law vs. state law. Medical marijuana has been legal in our state fora while now and it's a big mess because of the discrepancies in law.

I believe that we should get the medical side squared away before we jump into legalizing recreational use. I seriously doubt that all this tax money is going to be realized for us, due to it being a controlled substance at the federal level.
