"I believe marijuana should be legal, and not simply for medical use. But I also recognize that federal law trumps state law. ... Washington could remedy that by legalizing marijuana. But when U.S. attorneys in California send out dozens of letters threatening landowners and lien holders with the seizure of their property and assets, they're not going after the drug trade. They are using the full force of the federal government to threaten people whose crime is renting, not breaking federal criminal law. Make that renting to businesses allowed under state law." [editor's note: No, federal law does NOT automatically "trump" state law - TLK] (10/16/11)
