Or maybe you should go to any federal prison and ask how many inmates are there for simple marijuana possession.

Then go to any other detention center or jail and ask the same question.

Compare results and then get back to me with your findings.

So, you are saying that they just give up and go home.

Gotcha.

I believe the Gacy example illustrates my point perfectly.

None of that is necessary.

The federal law against possession was repealed and those charges have been dropped.

It doesn't matter if NOBODY was ever federally charged with possession, that statute is no longer available for them to use and THAT does.

How is it not available for them to use? There are still local authorities who can do that for them.

I hear they are on the same side of the law.

Exactly. So it could play out like this:

They convince the D.A. to prosecute on possession charges. Keep them jail while the feds continue on with their case, not giving them a chance to destroy evidence, etc etc.

Then they end up dropping the possession charge in favor of whatever escalated offenses have been uncovered by federal agents.

Just one simple question: would a tactic like this have worked in Colorado or any other state, including the District of Colombia, where possession is legal by state law, BEFORE the federal law against possession was repealed?

Yes, and it still works. If they can, they'll find something that sticks. If simple possession doesn't work in the state in question, they will submit into evidence the sandwich bags found in the house and upgrade the charge to intent to distribute.

Or, as you put it, get creative.

We could go over a countless number of scenarios, but the bottom line is that repealing the cannabis law gives the Feds one less charge that "will stick" and compels them to become "more creative" than simply pulling someone over on possession.
