Welcome to the runaway police state, kids. Throw out your Civics textbook, nobody remembers Alcohol Prohibition required a Constitutional Amendment and even then could only prohibit the sale mfr or transport because back then everyone knew Congress doesn't have the Constitutional authority to prohibit a drug. You were busted under a state law? Well then after you are released and apologized to by the Governor, perhaps the state lawmakers should be arrested as the real criminals here for abdicating their constitutional duty to regulate commerce, which is the opposite of handing it over to organized crime through prohibition. Oh well, not while sitting in session. Funny how the much more deadly and addictive alcohol and tobacco are enjoyed in the halls of power, while prohibition can't even keep drugs out of jail itself.
