Breaking! California Secedes from United States Over Medical Marijuana

Legislature votes to restore independence California Republic following State Attorney General's statement that "the Federal Government has in this matter clearly and repeatedly overreached its authority to regulate the life of this, our sovereign state. We have no recourse but to do what is right and depart the Union. May God have mercy on our souls, and on the souls of those who attempt to stop us in this just and holy declaration of our independence."

Yet Another War Over Yet Another "Peculiar Institution?"

It began with a plea for reason and restraint: California Attorney General Kamala Harris' statement that an “overly broad federal enforcement campaign will make it more difficult for legitimate patients to access physician-recommended medicine in California."

But when the hated, grasping Federalists in Washington ignored that plea and continued their ruthless crackdown on medical marijuana dispensaries, it became clear that more drastic measures were called for. Today, those measures have been taken.

Perhaps no words can better capture the sense of awesome stillness and dread that now hang over Sacramento than those scrawled on a cardboard placard by a lone protestor on the Capitol steps: "Your move, Obama."

More on this story as it develops.

Hey guys, I'm a disabled vet that supports CA MMJ. But this idea of leaving the Union is just plain stupid. We know the Fed is overstepping there bounds, but let's not shoot ourselves in the foot with such nonsense.

Obama just approved more off shore oil drilling by BP in the Gulf of Mexico.

Did we elect:

  1. The Manchurian Candidate.
  2. The anti-Christ.
  3. A moron.

If this is really the case, I would like to nominate Snoop Dog for President and Cheech & Chong for Vice President!
