Years ago, the Tenth Amendment Center was a lone voice talking about how specific state laws were acts of nullification. 25 states were standing against George Bush’s Real ID act. And now 18 states are nullifying federal laws on weed. Today, we’re not alone. Even the Department of justice acknowledges that voter initiatives to legalize marijuana in Washington and Colorado are acts of nullification. So either these guys are reading our work, or the message is really getting out there. Either way, we’re winning.
