It's legal on the federal level BUT each state can make it's own rules up. Many follow the fed, but some deviate from it.

Look here and then pick your state (pull-down towards the top of the page)...

Right, it's a state thing... if your state doesn't allow it, there is nothing the federal government can do. That's how the constitution is written.

The petition doesn't mean a thing... go ahead an sign it.

2 isn't a few, and as far as I know those are the only states left that you can't brew in. Though it won't be long before you can, I could almost guarantee.

The federal gov't defers to the states on this.

The federal gov't only upholds the constitution. All other rights (or, more accurately, limitations to freedom) are determined by the states, as they should be. So, when the 18th ammendment to the Constitution was ratified, the federal government had say. When it was repealed with the 21st, the gov't was back OUT of the business of alcohol (excepting collecting their taxes).

Now, of course, the federal gov't is so far out of hand that the statement above is ludicrous. But if we go further this topic will be moved to Debate. For more information, see http://www.lp.org/

Even if the federal government had the authority to make such a decision the president alone surely lacks the authority to unilaterally make that happen.

So the president can't make crack "unilaterally" illegal?

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Hoppiness.


Even without my little trick at the end, no more powerful words were ever written, especially given the circumstances during which they were written. I just got back from China and I would like to remind you all how much worse things could be.
