It's a great day!
Now the ball is in the Fed's court and it ought to be interesting to see how this plays out. These laws put the feds in a very difficult position as I think most people across the nation are going to see this as a State's Rights issue. I'm willing to bet the feds will have to compromise and allow state-regulated production and sales. They can do nothing about personal possession as they don't have the resources to enforce it.
What I'm concerned about is selective enforcement.
Let's say the feds suspect somebody of something else. More serious drugs, smuggling, weapons violations ... whatever.
They can still arrest on marijuana charges & conduct searches incident to that arrest.
Which means that anyone they suspect of anything better not be toking.
