Although at least 10 states have enacted laws that allow their residents to own, grow and sell cannabis for recreational and medical purposes, possession, production and sale of marijuana is still a violation of federal drug law. Despite the previous non-intervention measures in the Obama era to prosecute violations of federal cannabis law, former Justice Minister Jeff Sessions clarified on March 8, 2018 that federal law enforcement officers would chase dealers and drug gangs instead of More than casual users. Both the federal and state governments have established gun control laws for more than 180 years. State gun control laws are now often more restrictive than federal laws due to increased gun violence and mass shootings. In these cases, gun rights advocates often argue that states have actually transcended their rights, ignoring the constitutional Second Amendment and supreme terms. In the 2008 District of Columbia v. Heller case, the US Supreme Court ruled that the laws of the District of Columbia completely banned its citizens from possessing pistols that violated the Second Amendment. Two years later, the Supreme Court ruled that Heller’s decision applies to all US states and territories. Other current state rights issues include same-sex marriage, death penalty, and assisted suicide.
