Half their residents are liberal mental patients or high so no surprise

It IS a limit on federal law- but we apaprently don’t have a competent enough lawyer to argue thsi fact and to make sure our federal govenrment understand it’s limits-

Where in the Constitution did they find this “right”?

The same place they found the ‘right’ to kill babies
If the SCOTUS has a different opinion then that case falls.
