March 11, 2016—Michael Boldin, founder and executive director of the Tenth Amendment Center, explains how the people and their states have made progress in recent years, so much so that presidential candidates are changing their tune.
“Now, make no mistake. These people didn’t all suddenly wake up after some kind of vision and suddenly decide to forgo their devotion to federal power. They didn’t stake out this Tenth Amendment policy position on marijuana, becuase they saw the light on their own.
The only reason we’re hearing from most candidates from both major political parties talking about the Tenth Amendment and states being able to determine their own marijuana policy is because the people and then the states acted without first getting federal permission. And that should be our approach to everything, because the federal government will never willingly fix problems created by the federal government.”
