    Along with the state law to allow medical use of marijuana that voters passed Nov. 4 was an ordinance approved in Ferndale that went a step farther -- allowing medical marijuana distribution. On Friday, after Ferndale City Attorney Dan Christ issued an opinion saying state laws preempted the local ordinance, a spokesman for Ferndale police said his department would ignore the local measure. "This new ordinance really has no teeth in it whatsoever," said Lt. William Wilson. If anyone tries to distribute marijuana in Ferndale, "they'll find that we're going to enforce all the laws against possession" in state and federal criminal codes, Wilson said.
    Pretty ironic, eh?

    Let the games begin.

    I see a whole lot of political/law tug of war going on over this subject.

    Maybe their new found love of state pre emption should be tested with a picnic. :celebrate

    The complete and utter truth can be challenged from every direction and it will always hold up. Accordingly there are few greater displays of illegitimacy than to attempt to impede free thought and communication.

    You would think, Ferndale especially, would have learned from the lawsuit they lost against the Firearms pre-emption a few years ago. Sheesh, talk about stupid.
