The FDR New Dealer who launched the “War on Drugs.” But that’s big government for you.

Drugs are supposed to be an issue left to the states. That is the constitutional position in our estimation. The prohibitionists had to pass an amendment to outlaw booze. Other drugs were basically declared illegal federally by an overreaching Roosevelt administration in the 1930s by fiat. The Feds knew they couldn’t pass an amendment so they just imposed cannabis prohibition. This of course expanded the power of the federal government and gave the government an excuse to poke around in everything like it had during alcohol prohibition.

Seven out of ten Americans want the federal government to uphold President Trump’s campaign pledges to let states set their own marijuana laws without federal interference, a new poll finds.

Just 23 percent of U.S voters support “the government enforcing federal laws against marijuana in states that have already legalized medical or recreational marijuana” in a survey released Thursday by Quinnipiac University. Seventy-one percent would oppose such a move.

The poll also found that support for outright legalization has risen sharply since the last time the poll was conducted. Whereas 54 percent of voters supported ending prohibition in the university’s June 2016 survey, 59 percent are on board now. Barely a third — 36 percent — of Americans now oppose legalizing cannabis.
