Nullification Success! Weed – Interview on Real News with David Knight

weed

The federal government claims the authority to prohibit a plant. Of course, this is absurd, as evidenced by the fact that it required a constitutional amendment before the feds could enforce alcohol prohibition. I appeared on Real News with David Knight to talk about this unconstitutional war on a plant and how it has ultimately […]

Open Letter to Kentucky State Sen. Albert Robinson on Marijuana and Federal Supremacy

robinson2

Kentucky state Sen. Albert Robinson (R-London) has been a vocal opponent of legalizing medical marijuana in the commonwealth. He has based his opposition on the Constitution’s “supremacy clause” arguing that Kentucky cannot pass a law that contradicts federal statute. Unfortunately, Sen. Robinson demonstrates a gross misunderstanding of what federal supremacy actually means. He also ignores […]

The federal government has relentlessly tried to enforce marijuana prohibition, but because of state action, it has utterly failed. I appeared on InfoWars Real News with David Knight to talk about Jeff Sessions’ empty threat to crack down on marijuana and more generally about the effectiveness of state nullification. “No matter what the federal government has […]

Last week, I appeared on Patrick Timpone’s One Radio network show to talk about AG Jeff Sessions and his feckless pot policy.

I started the […]

Gov. Paul LePage is doing it wrong. Instead of protecting the people of Maine from overreaching and unconstitutional federal overreach, he’s begging the feds to trample on his state’s sovereignty. You see, the Republican governor doesn’t like marijuana. And he doesn’t like the fact that the people of his state voted to legalize weed. He wants […]

Gun People Need to Learn a Lesson from the Weed People

Gun people talk tough. “They can have my gun when they pry it from my cold, dead hand.” But all the bluster disappears when talk turns to the Supreme Court and the possibility of an opinion that undermines the Second Amendment. The prospect of a Hillary Clinton Supreme Court nominee has turned millions of gun […]

“10 Minutes Closer to Freedom” In this episode of Thoughts from Maharrey Head, I talk about weed! A lot of people are still pretty skeptical about nullification. They claim it won’t work. They think the federal government is just too powerful. But nullification can work. And it does. The proof is in the weed. In […]
