State government all think that because cannabis is still federally illegal they can ignore citizen's fundamental constitutional rights because the federal government won't protect the rights of potheads.
Think about that for a second. Those folks, elected or appointed government officials most of whom swore oaths to behave legally and honest and fairly, were given an opportunity to willfully violate the US Constitution without near term repercussion and they jumped at it like alligator feeding time at the zoo. Patriotic Americans to the last for sure. Justice runs in their blood.
Whats even worse is that every last one of them knows that federal constitutional rights still apply to people who have yet to be convicted of a federal crime. State government officials are operating the moral equivalent of Jim Crow schemes and nobody thinks there is anything wrong with it because you're just a bunch of filthy stupid hippies. Cheech and Chong and all of the comedy writers in Hollywood worked for decades to promote that stereotype and it stuck really well.
The ACLU doesn't seem to care much about us either, their crowd is all backslappy with the other side, but if you talk to their other face they'll tell you all about how people with unreasonable sense's of entitlement abuse the authority and power.
Not that you weren't warned about all that coming to pass
