so how could that work? federal enforcement/boots on the ground?
that doesn't sound likely, state/local would have to be the enforcers

The Feds will be happy to step in.
For example they have been squashing CBD oil with the FDA.
If you want CBD you get Epidiolex.
I think that is all that is currently approved.
CBD is a drug and you cant get drugs without FDA aproval.
Silly drug dealers selling helpful drugs whithout FDA aproval.
The reason? 2017
Pressure from big money$$$$$$
FDA has proclaimed cannabidiol (CBD) isn’t a dietary supplement ingredient at all, thanks largely to GW’s current drug trials and a related exclusionary clause in the 1994 Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act (DSHEA).
“I think the market will stand as it is until GW has a commercially viable product, at which point FDA will start sampling at the border, and they will shut down the trade,
Todd Harrison, a lawyer in Washington who advises clients on FDA regulations, expects GW to pressure FDA, demanding removal of supplements containing CBD, if Epidiolex is approved.
If I’m GW … I’m going to be knocking on their door, saying … ‘Why aren’t you getting these CBD products off the market? I’ve spent hundreds of millions of dollars getting a drug approved, and you’re letting these supplement companies market’" an ingredient that wasn’t available in the food supply before GW commenced its drug trials,
