Odd how pot gets people to vote yes but a right like the 2nd that is in out founding documents no state will stand up and fight for...
no federal authority is allowed to arrest or even enter any county of any state UNLESS the sheriff allows the feds into his county.
the sheriff is the most powerful law officer in the country IN his county.
no federal power can trump him legally.....
that is why the fed is trying to under mine the power of the sheriff by moving toward nullification of the county sheriffs thru out the union of states.
if this occurs we WILL be living in an iron clad regime!
so unless the county sheriff's of corlorado, washington state or massachsetts allow the feds into their counties then the feds are powerless.
then again, most sheriffs are ignorant of their real duties and constitutional powers. they are minor politicians running a cop shop looking for the next election...so,.... the chance to cave in to the fed is very real.
