This is a question concerning sin/not sin in obeying
legitimate authority. Yes it’s pot but my question is
not about the pros and cons of pot use so…
My town, in which pot growing has always been illegal,
has recently begun work on a proposal to allow
the growing of two plants outside or six plants inside.
This is in a county that allows maximum of six. In a state
that also allows a small number. However, federally
it is still a crime not to mention our county spends
a fortune on search and destroy eradication teams in our
three National Forests.
So who would be the legitimate authority to be obeyed/
When I contacted the USDA last year on an unrelated
ag issue, their take was local law always takes precedence
over federal IF the local law is more stringent. In this
pot case though the local laws are more lax. So?
