Attorney General Jeff Sessions moved Thursday to revoke the Obama-era see-no-evil policy on federal enforcement of marijuana laws, announcing that federal law enforcement will no longer look the other way even in states that have legalized use of the drug.
The decision doesn’t change the state policies, but it does give U.S. attorneys the freedom to decide how strongly to enforce federal law that classifies marijuana as an illegal substance.

Does this give California a clear reason to leave “These United States of America”?
While everyone would like to think that “secession” was “settled” by the War Of Northern Aggression, it wasn’t. Like the demise of the Soviet Union, it really doesn’t matter what the “central authority” wants. Collapse occurs.
There is an internationally recognized to “self-determination”. Does that de facto entail an automatic right to secession?
Certainly seems to, to me.
