It very well may happen. If you support state rights then you don't want to see this happen.

Legal marijuana is pretty much guaranteed to go to federal court as well. In both cases, I'm on the opposite side from Trump, but I would like to see some finality on both issues. I don't really like living in limboland wondering how it's all going to play out. Illegals shouldn't have to live with the uncertainty either. Kick em out or give them legal status, but enough of doing neither already!
There is a conflict with marijuana. I'm not sure why the Obama administration still wants to harm people for doing nothing to harm others.

Correct me if I am wrong, but what I am seeing from the comments is a limit to the federal government's power, Certainly purview, in matters of law and law enforcement. If wrong, it is my lack of understanding only, not the clarity of others expressed views.
