Having said that, how about pot on California's campuses?
Anybody 21 or older can legally buy recreational marijuana in California starting Monday. But they still can’t take it to school.Odd that California gets federal monies but doesn't feel obligated to follow federal law.
Officials from the Sacramento-area campuses of Los Rios Community College District, the University of California and California State University say school policies barring marijuana on campus and at school-sponsored events have not changed since California voters passed Proposition 64, which legalized recreational cannabis.
The colleges all have similar drug policies saying possession or use of illegal drugs, including marijuana, on campus could result in disciplinary action ranging from treatment programs to dismissal.
“While marijuana is regulated differently in California, the federal government still considers it illegal,” said Anita Fitzhugh, a spokeswoman for California State University, Sacramento. “As a state entity receiving federal funding, Sacramento State is obligated to follow federal laws regarding drugs.”
Update, 1/5/18: In related news, the following screenshot comes from Instapundit:
This is exactly correct. It is not up to the states to determine which federal laws they will comply with, and neither should a sitting senator expect the President and his administration not to enforce federal laws--when making sure the laws are faithfully enforced is the very definition of the President's responsibilities. If the senator doesn't like the law, he should exercise his Article I prerogative and change the law.
Cory Gardner is clearly an idiot.
