It has nothing to do with "should"- it is a CONSTITUTIONAL MANDATE.<quoted text>

pot laws should be left to states...
The States have been all but castrated thanks to the 16th and 17th Amendment's.
The 16th allowed the Federal Government to directly tax the income of the populous. As such, now instead of the State being able to fund it's own programs thus retaining control, the Fed taxes at such a rate little is left for the State to take. Then the Fed dangles the carrot- do as we say or you won't get your citizens money back from us to run all those programs and projects.
This goes right in line with the 17th Amendment which basically created a second House of Representatives, thus removing the State's voice in the Federal government.
We could fix a lot of our issues by sending those two Amendments the way of prohibition.
